    Ride Plate

    Is it worth the $120 to put a ride plate on my 94 750 SLT or 93 SL650 ?
    What do they do anyway?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    You would be swapping out the existing ride plates you have, I would assume. Some help with porpoising, some help to cut and hold corners better........... Depends on types... Do a search for ride plates... I have seen plenty of posts in here....

    If you have trim on the 650 you can use any ride plate, I used a Jet Dynamics on my sl750, gave me an extra mph or 2, allowed me to put trim up without the bouncing. If no trim I would use a stock extended plate from an SLX, not much available for the SLT, the only one is from the 96 STL700 its a few inches longer nothing for speed, but a little less bouncing. Ocean Pro made a good plate for the later SLT's better handling & speed, but never tried one on an SL.

    Both models you have used a short ride plate. They both can benefit from an aftermarket plate IMO.

    Usually you get faster planing, (more accel) better handling, reduced porpoising, better top speed in rougher water.

    And i do have an ocean Pro plate for the SL for sale. FS Clearing out the garage. Everything must go!!!!
