Removing "Casting Flaws" on the OEM Ride Plate & Intake Grate
Is there anything to be had from removing casting flaws on the OEM Ride Plate & Intake Grate?
I did this with my Ultra-150 with assumingly good results - although I used the "shotgun" approach and did many modifications at the same time, like Solas Impeller + Aftermarket Pump Nozzle + Trim Cable Modification, so it was difficult to tell if there was a difinitive improvement.
They sure looked nice though:
Thanks Always !!!

I would assume it couldn't hurt unless you took off too much material, I cut the stx plates for a little more angle by knocking the mounting bosses down a little with a flap wheel. Its a completely different animal but the principle is the same. I always tell people that you gain speed and handling by fitting parts not adding them.

When I scraped the barnacles off my old 30ft cruiser I went from 7mph to 12mph!!
Not sure this post is very helpful but I figured I may as well post to keep the thread going haaaaaaaa
