Jims new plate
It works.... 06 gp13. completely stock engine, stock reeds no stuffers, no headwork, stock keyway, no fuel controller. 73.4 today without rideplate holes filled...80 degrees air temp... My previous best was 71.0 with a stock trued R@D plate, no angle cuts. Jim put the cuts on it and it was worth 2.4 mph.. But wait, the previous 71 had the holes filled, so 74 should be here soon... Thanks Jim, great riding today..

Was this on your ski Ross? You have more done than just the plate and grate right?
Yea its my ski... it only has Jims plate, grate, dplate, jetworks, 87nozzle, 1420df, ppk, ported throttle bodies w/ riva velocity stacks. The 73.4 was with seat on and bucket in... Twas a superman though, toes touchin the water behind me.

Handling is awesome. It has never handled better. Much sharper. Even in my little slalom tests today. Beautiful.
I did the tbody work. Just turned em into 40mm smoothies, machined- radiused entry edge to match v-stacks and trimming throttle blade screws protrusion off. Old school basics to enhance intake airflow velocity is all.
