    Plate angle

    Question...

    Old skool guys,

    On the R&D GP rideplate, can someone who has the Group-k cut on their plate measure.....

    What and where the angle is cut into the rear most section of their plate..??

    This is something i can easily cut myself, just don't want to cut too much off the sucker..

    The big plan is cut the angle and true the ride plate surface..
    All before i start to mess with shims..

    Cheers
    Gerry

    If I remember right it is 3,3,3

    3* degrees on the mounting boss then 3 inches from the back of the plate you cut 3* from the flat portion of the plate.

    Thank you Bill...

    Safe to assume its 3* on the rear mounting boss only..??

    I cut across both the front and rear bosses, just a slight clean up on the front. This way you have better contact area when you bolt it up.
