    r&d plate = new top speed+ no reverse

    OK so i installed the r&d plate over the winter and took out the ski for the first time last weekend. best mph last year was 71.9 mph in good fall air with about half tank of fuel.with the r&d plate and 7/8 tank it I got a 72.9 on my first try then there was to many boats and rough water. Also i had to grind a little off the top of the plate to get the reverse bucket handle to fully lock into revere. when locked into reverse the ski no longer goes backwards it kinda is like neutral but you can steer it side to side but it doesn't move backwards anybody else have this trouble. Its kinda like the mounting bolts for the reverse bucket on the plate are not positioned and the water jet is just going strait down.

    i have experienced that myself
    so he is right in a way

    you rev the hell out of it and all it does dip the ski with tiny movement rearwards

    i hardly use reverse though so id doesnt bother me

    You probably need to cut the bucket more you have to cut it quite a bit to get it to go fully down my reverse as I said works the same as oem

    I notched my bucket out by 15mm. just keep filing a little at a time till you get full travel and the reverse handle locks properly into place.
