WORX Ride Plate blocks FZR pump
Firstly the WORX ride plate is awesome...Highly recommend them for CC racing.
BUT....Be careful, If you follow their installation instructions and silicon them in you won’t be able to remove your pump to get to your impeller off. There’s a reinforcement ridge on the plate that the pump hits as you slide it off. This means you have to take the ride plate off. I used a good amount of silicon (as recommended by WORX) and it only just broke free. Anymore I could have been in trouble.
Just a heads up

Same goes for the OEM FZ rideplate. You need to drop the rideplate or completely remove it to take out the pump

Thanks for the heads up man . Can you tell us about the plate and how much speed loss and what not. Sorry for the hijack but I'm really keen on getting some info on this plate. Been hearing some good reports on it so far.

And yes we know it rubs speed but in CC racing who cares when u can turn and hold it WOT.
Speed loss is between 2 to 4mph average
Where you located in Syd

I don't see any benefit of siliconing a ride plate anyway. Not sure why they recommend that.

i just machined the ribs off mine and the pump slips in and out easy as
never really siliconed the plate on my self

I noticed it was a little more nose up so I would have to trim an extra notch than usual. Im thinking a 2.5 degrees nozzel would give that back. in CC I have the nose trimmed hard down any way.
You wont be dissapointed. My mates FZR with a Riva plate wouldnt come close for this application. I rode his with stock, riva and R&D.
