Thread: r&d rideplate

  1. #1

    r&d rideplate

    The stock gp1200 rideplate is allmoust even whit the intakegrate, now i was fitting the r&d rideplate and notised that it is like 8mm higher than intagrate (if you look it behind) is that ok or should i try to get it lower? in back of jet that r&d rideplate is even whit another shapes of jet..

    I have read some of shimming that, but that doesent go even very easily.. that needs lot of washers

    But i only wanna be sure, that i dont wanna but it wrong position if i start shimming it...

    Thanks guys!

    Shim it
    Keep the ride plate just above the intake grate with no shims in back.

    shims in front now, if i put straight line to intakegrate and rideplate.. rideplates back is way more upper than intake grate and front of rideplate..

    And your advice is not to put shims in back? even it is not straight line now?


    It´s too cold here in finland, so idont even can go try it

    thanks again!

    What type plate do you have, and is it much longer than the stock ride plate?

    R&D and no its not longer.You cant really shim a stock plate in front without moding it and that makes it weak.
    RD plate is faster because it gets the nose up out of the water stock plate is almost flat.
