Thread: Who likes their R & D rideplate?

Who likes their R & D rideplate?
Who likes this plate on their FZR/S ski.
Do they think it performs better for turning/speed in small chop and flat water than the stock plate?
Do you think it adds a true 2-3 ontop of stock for top end?
Any other comments about this plate, I can get it locally this week so don't have to wait for other plates.

my friend purchased one and hated it he installed the standard one back on the ski, i then tried it as he offered to me for sale and my opinion was the same, i think 2-3mph increase is optomistic to say the least
he then sold it on ebay

For flat water riding the R&D plate was good. Its a speed plate. There has been good results obtained with the VX plate also but I have not tried one.
My riding is 10% flat water and the rest lakes and ocean. I tried various shims front and back but was not happy with its handling and loss of hook up in chop.
I now use the WORX ride plate... less speed but terrific hook up and handling in rough water. Intend to do some testing with it when the weather improves.
