    new mod on vx ride plate for the FZR-FZS

    I have been doing a new mod on the vx plates for the FZR-FZS i have done 7 plates already the ski's speeds vary from 75 MPH. to over 84 plus MPH. and so far everyone is very happy with the results. With the new mod i took in consideration to add handling to the plate and also have a awesome top speed. Will keep everyone posted as more results come in. Thank you, Jim

    Jim's VX plate mod is a great addition to my FZR.I am very happy how this plate handles in the chop in close course racing.I have seen over 3 mph gain in top speed runs on smooth waters.1 shim in the rear works best for me.

    Questions:

    - How can the ride plate (even with mods) from Yamaha's entry-level model help the performance of its fastest/best handling model?

    - Why can't the FZR/FZS ride plate be modified to give similar results?

    - If I were interested in a modded VX ride plate, where would I get the plate to begin with?

    - Could the modified plate be installed "as is", or would it require tweaking?

    Thanks.

    The Vx plate has a didfferent shape to it. The fz plate is shaped like a wedge scrubbing speed, vx straight. You couldnt safely modify the fz plate to have the same shape. Curious where to get one as well.

    And is yours modded? If so, who did the mods?

    (BTW - I'm right down the street from you, in Wauconda)
