VX plate shimming on FZS...
I am currently running a stock VX plate with no shims anywhere. Im thinking that I need some shims in the front two holes to change angle a bit. The boat is too wet at this point. It has enough power right now to get some really good speeds from it if I could raise the bow at tad....
I know you guys have done this, what are the pros, cons????

You are correct, you do need to shim the vx plate. I got the best results when i added two washers on each front hole. However even after doing this my fzr still had quite a bit of bounce. I've got to where i only run this plate for speed runs or to race somebody.

Thanks for the responses. My plate seldom bounces at all. I was worried about that when I installed it but performs well. It 'has' bounced but nothing that makes me want to go back to the slower stock plate. Even two riders at speed and it handles good. It still turns well also....
I will do this tommorrow and test...Thanks guys....
