    xlt ride plate v. pump wedge

    Which one is a better value? (Looks like Leo's the only choice for the wedge on the xlt but am not sure.)

    The only experience I have w/wedge is on my stxr...it added 1-1.5mph.

    I know the R&D plate does not meet the keel design shape, but if it gives me better lift, etc. that's ok... .

    Imo, get the rideplate either way, then get a gpr 5° nozzle. They can be had for$50 or so and i got a good 1.5mph top end from it.

    So, from an earlier post (above) here about that, I guess I order part #67X-51318-00-94 correct? Do I have to do anything to make the reverse bucket work?

    PS: I've got an '03 as well!

    +1 on the ride plate and 5 deg nozzle. You will need to drill and tap for the mount bolts. Four 6mm holes if i remember right. Leo's wedge is a good product and well worth the money, but start with the basics first.

    Yup you will need to drill and tap holes for the bucket however the spost are already there and are noticable in the casting. just drill the spots and run the 6mm tap in there. you really cant scew it up. lemme know if and when you decide to make it happen and i'll pull my bucket off and take a few pics for you.

    Look at the FX140 nozzle. It's a 5 degree nozzle drilled and tapped for the reverse bucket.

    Kieth, upgrade, et al, thanks dudes for spreadn' the love! BTW, after checking pricing, the ride plate looks like the winner in terms of cost benefit, since all three parts (plate, wedge, reduction pump nozzle, are all about 160.00+/-... ?)

    And too, after this 'investigation' I'm thnking about doing the 5 degree 87mm nozzle to my stage2 1300 for more bottom end. In that case, should I get a larger turning nozzle to match-again to achieve more bottom(?).

    Thanks again dudes!
