    D-plate or jet workd plate on 1200 PV

    Has anyone used the jet works performance plate on the 1200 PV motor. I'd like to know if it's a better option than the standard d-plate. If you are not sure what it is they are sold at pwcengine.com. I wanted to put up a picture but cant get it to copy. The exhaust exit is centrally located on the plate instead on the side like a D-plate. It also comes with a replacement chip. I am planning on buying a plate in the next two days so I am wondering if it's worth the extra money.

    R&D D-plate on a 1200 ski works best. The 1300 ski likes the Riva better it is a little bigger.

    +1 , Moderator RX951 used a Jetworks O plate years ago on his 1200, with his combination, the ski was very fast. Thats really the only O plate i have seen anyone use. Riva plate has more bottom end and the R&D has better top end. You have a stock 87mm nozzle (unless you changed it) along with a Riva/R&D plate, i would also seal the pump and do the tunnel reinforcment and updated shoe brackets at the same time for safety and prevent prop spin. I assume the ski is bone stock?

    rpm gains

    have read on the many threads on the D plate install that if you open the standard D plate a few MMs making it larger it might increase rpms/performance...seems like an easy way to gain some...any feedback anyone?

    yes it's a stock 2000 xl1200. I have a rebuilt motor and bill just completed the carbs. I'm getting ready to put it back together and wanted to know if there was much of a difference in the plates. Also I am planning on a premix setup, but if I decide not to what are the clips that are being used to hold the oli lines on.Oil injection would be a better way to go. Just to make it easy.
