That's the spirit!
ANYONE WITH A SHO,
Jim's mod to you stock plate will gain you 2.5-2.7 mph in a back to back test! That is HUGE! The SHO also handles better with the plate loosened up a bit, so if you have a SHO, give yourself the gift of 2.7 MPH! This is one of the cheapest, easiest, and best mods I've done to my ski.

Do YOU have data to support that claim or are you using my info?
For me 2.7 mph gain over stock.
With the modded R & D, i had 3.2 mph gain.
As a rec rider, I don't give a crap about .5 mph, when you are trying to balance speed vs power. The R & D plate loosens the ski up big time and may cause it to buck, which I have experienced.
The reality is by using the stock plate and getting it modified, you don't have to buy a ride plate and then get it modify, saving you money,

Awesome Jim! Out of curiosity, has anyone reported a buck with the modded VX ride plate on an FZ?? I would probably shim the back of the plate slightly to reduce any bounce.

There was one report of the modded VX plate bouncing, but the guy did *not* put in the shims that Jim included and said to use. Unfortunately he never wrote back to report if he ever put the shims in and the result of that.

if i lived in florida i could ride year round.
i am considering getting the mod to the oem plate.
especially since the r&d plate has been on in all year. except for 1 race i put the oem plate on to keep the nose down which helped alot with hookup for the conditions i was racing in.
