I've seen one before here on the forum, I think it was Kelly-A if memory serves. The main component added was a small 1-2 inch extension on the stock rideplate. This extension increased the handling a bit from what I understand. You could also grind down the mounting bosses on the plate in order to increase the plate angle. IMO there would be a lot of guess work involved if you do it yourself... and you could put yourself at risk if you mess up. I would send it to an expert like Jim.

I think I also remember seeing a thread a long time ago where someone welded skegs on. Must not have been anything great because I nobody else has been doing it.

My stock FZ plate has spent the last two years in a box in my garage...

I will have a go at it tomorrow as sold my Riva ride plate and waiting on the farting plate. But in the meantime why not weld two stock FZ ride plates together, reinforce it structurally to make one long plate lol. Will Post some pics of this frankenstein plate

haha this is one super extended ride plate! Will continue modifying it tomorrow and hopefully test it sometime next week before I get the Farthing Ride plate.
