    riva ride plate

    what's the feed back about this mod and the results?
    I'am going to have to remove my ride plate to due to damage and to renew the pump shoe thinking about this upgrade.

    Forgot does the mod perform best with the pump wedge or without.

    thanks for the links not sure if there are any positives or advantages it would appear that standard is best.

    Confused.

    I ride an RXT in salt with a stage 2+ will I gain with the new ride plate have read the threads still unsure my main concerns are;
    Is the conversion relatively straight forward direct from the box?
    Do you run the pump wedge with the new plate or remove?
    I ride the English Channel and experiance many conditions from smooth to chop how will the plate improve my ride?
    Does the flush point alter?
    Main advanteges handling or top speed?
    I have a Worx grate is that the best combination?
    Sorry so many questions only considering the conversion as got to renew ride plate and shoe due to damage thought might as well convert whislt removed need help as gotta get back out there.

    Cheers.

    top speed is the advertised gain as allways..

    but it will track better in the chop ...as well ..

    wedge depends on the boat every hull isnt exactly the same..some work better with it some work better without it .....

    flush point ..i believe the riva kit changes it ..i used a heat exchanger..mine is the same...as stock

    I have done some more searching and it is claimed that if you ride in the sea that the plate is not a good option due to it can not handle the chop can someone chime in to clarify before i make a mistake and waste my coin. Some pros and cons please from members who have done this conversion.

    If you ride in the ocean... there is zero need for a high angle plate anyway IMO... the only thing that you will gain from the riva plate is a few MPH and a ski that wants to go straight! It really all depends on what your looking for (not everyone else), and what water conditions you ride in.
