    Intake Grate for 2008 FX HO Worth it or Not

    Got a 08 FX HO. Love the machine, but the nano hull tends to make the ski ride higher in the water compared to the older models, and it gets bouncy in chop and comes unhooked easily. I'm wondering whether the R&D grate would make enough of a difference to justify the cost. I plan to seal the pump at the same time. Anybody try one on this model? What about adding a R&D ride plate.....any advantage to that? I don't care about speed, just want to smooth out the ride.

    Thanks!

    From everything i've read, the riva ride plate does a lot better in the chop, while the R&D is more of a speed plate. I like the R&D intake grate because it has 2 support bars.
