    Riva rideplate and R&D grate!! Girdle yes or no??

    Im mounting a Riva rideplate with an R&D grate on my rxp! Should I keep the girdle on there? Or remove it? I was thinking that it will be easier mounting this plate without the girdle but probably not? Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Definitely!
    Mounting the plate will not be any easier/ harder installing the girdle.

    So once you hit say 75+ is it time to ditch the riva grate and go to an R&D?

    I dont think you need to run it with the riva plate. I believe they are like the 08+ rxpx ride plates.. But im not 100% So find out. Might save a little bit of money.

    As long as you use the plate as a mounting tab whatever you do which I see you don't never run a riva grate past 75 our you are asking for trouble!! Adam that's one sexy woman you have there!!!

    I just mounted everything today! The riva plate is no difference than the OEM plate.... Has only on tab to screw and the pump shoe has 2 others. It wasn't that hard just a lot of grinding, but the final product looks real good..
