    FZR with VX plate shims?

    What are most guys who use the VX plate on a FZR using shim wise? Mine came with .090 on the front only, which makes the plate just about level on the front to the transom plate. However I have a high speed bounce, and bought a Farthing plate(which fits perfectly BTW). I know it can be run with our without stock shims, but don't know whether to use only a shim at front or stock full length shims. Any experience will be greatly appreciated, as my lake time is limited and its usually kinda rough for testing and comparisions.
    THANKS!

    Stock shims is was it was intended to use, start with that and add or subtract to your liking

    when you shim the plate upfront its better to leave a very slight recess because sometimes leaving a bit out will cause that bounce.

    No shims on my modified VX plate. Very very little bounce--usually when I am low on gas going faster than 70.
