    help pulling off 95 spx ride plate

    Hi, new here. I am trying to pull off my 95 spx ride plate. The good thing is it is on a spare hull that I have so if any damage occures it doesnt matter. I need to learn because mine is cracked so I dont want to mess any up on my hull. The hull is stripped and the only thing left on it is the ride plate. I have read in other post that you have to pry it off because silicone is holding it on. Is that the only way to do it? Is that how a dealer would do it? You would think it would chip the hull in the places where you would pry. Any help would be appreciated.

    Make sure you have all the bolts off then grab 2 wooden blocks and a bottle jack. Lay one of the blocks on the ride plate, set the jack onto the block, put the other block between the ram of the jack and the hull and crank away. You're basically using the blocks of wood to keep from damaging the hull and ride plate and the jack will just lever it off.
