Filling ride plate holes question
I just filled my ride plate holes as per the how-to thread but had 2 quick questions.
1) If u sand down the filling and accidentally sand the ride plate a bit do you need to treat the sanded metal with anything to stop corrosion?
2) I stupidly used a marine sealant that has a bit of flex in it. Will this ruin the gains from filling the holes? Is it worth getting the crap out and re-doing it with a hard curing epoxy putty?

Dont need to treat the plate with anything. Its aluminum and these things get grinded to hell when modified anyway Just smooth out your scratches with sofetr sandpaper if they are deep ones.
Id wait and see how they feel when they cure. Either way, the filling is probably just fine as long as theyre not falling out after a couple of rides, and that you dont have too much rope inside. I dont even use ropw anymore. I just fill the whole hole

I'll sand them all properly now that I'm not worried about the ride plate and do a speed run before I decide whether or not to pull the plugs and re-do them.
Thanks for the input guys

Let us know if there is a real top speed gain.
Never saw a difference on the 300X, so kind of lazy to do it on the PX.

Get it out. Replace it with the plumbers putty. When or if you need to take it out, use a simple flat head screwdriver and a hammer and hit in the center. It usually comes out with ease. JMO!
