    How to improve speed accuracy after R&D Ride Plate installed on 2012 Ultra 300X?

    Hello everyone,
    After I installed R&D ride plate, the screen speed reading of my ski was way off. The RPM was showing over 7000 but the speed was only 12MPH. The ski was going very fast but but my eyes got confused with low reading numbers. Any recommendation on how to correct this problem is deeply appreciated. Vincent

    Only fix is to replace the paddle wheel assy with a gps unit. I have a thread somewhere.

    Will it cause any damage to the engine if I continue to ride? THanks. Vincent

    I've had my R&d plate one fore maybe 30 hrs and did for the han race but i am also running a scom Will it cause issues without a scom I'm going to say yes it has a very good likely hood of that happening. I will tell you the ski runs differently when it's not getting the proper speed signal from the dash. At least on my ski. Installing the gps unit and accurate data going back to the ecu my ski runs better.

    Can you share on how to do this? What GPS and other things to buy? Currently my ski has R&D intake grate and R&D ride plate. I also ordered an R&D Speed Up module a few days ago. By the way, what is SCOM?

    Thank you, Vincent

    I am thinking to put the stock ride plate back. Will R&D intake grate and R&D speed up module do any good when the ski has a stock ride plate? Thanks.. Vincent
