    There isn't a SST grate available for the SHO. I've never heard of a Riva or R&D SHO grate breaking, but its still a good idea to inspect it for hairline cracks before every ride. If you're using a tunnel reinforcement(which you dhould be), you'll definately want to upgrade the mounting hardware, & either use WFO's billet insert or drill & tap the OEM front insert for M8's.

    heya mjh, tunnel reinforcement is on my to do list, though It's hard for me to justify $165.00 for something that looks like I could accomplish w/ shredded glass & marine resin. Has anyone tried glassing up the tunnel on their own? Your point about compensating for added thickness with proper mounting hardware is a good one.
