Where to buy SS 800 Grate? An how to mod them................
to make them work like a 1200 grate? I've seen a few guys on here are modding the SS 800 grates to have better holeshot an work more like the 1200 version... Any advise where to grind an mod would be greatly appreciated...

I think the reason you don't see many people modding them is because
A. People used the old 800 grate to go very, very fast. They put the 1200 grate back on for holeshot and CC racing.
B. The old 800 grate would sometimes come apart with the stress of overstuffing when people were going very, very fast.
C. Since the old 800 grate would go boom sometimes when people were going very, very fast, Jerry was nice enough to have some of them made out of stainless steel to protect his minions (Thanks, Jerry).
D. The thinking was that if you weren't trying to go very, very fast, and wanted to play around with a good holeshot, you put your old 1200 grate on for the day. People wouldn't have bought the SS grate if they had lost speed with it.
I don't recall; did any of the 1200 grates ever come apart like the 800 ones did?

Yeah that was my plan to use the R&D1200 to ride with an drag race with BUT im cracking them on the inside corner of the wing so I was wanting to mod a SS grate to work like a 1200 grate. Im sure it'll lose some speed up top from the 800grate but I'll just have another grate for radar pulls... Thanks for the info guys...
