    I like the solas and an aftermkt prop. Thats what i ended up running. It's a lot of personal preference.

    The Honda grate mod does not stay hooked up as well in the rough but is 1-2 MPH faster than the Solas grate on glass.

    I moded my R&D grate, im pleased with the results, I ground on it, reinforced some welds, now it fits right and keeps me hooked up!

    That must be a good grate to stay hooked with all of your horsepower. Does it pitch you forward when you come off the throttle?

    One time when I was having troubles with my system install, it just shut down on me on WOT I went over the handlebars into the water, then the ski ran me over! Yes on deaccelaration it pushes me forward
