    gpr seams to bounce or buck up and down when above 20 -30 mph

    Its really a pain but the ski bounces up and down above 20-30 mph and I don't know why. I am a learning noob with this 04 gp1300r ski. I hope this is not a common thing that just is. please let me know what yall think

    Trimming so the nose is lower will help the porpoising at low speeds. Mine smooths out at about 40mph.

    I like my riva ride plate. helps a lot with handling, but i've never tried the r&d plate.

    I have a Riva plate on my GPRSHO. I had an R&D on my GPRXP and I found no difference in the two.

    stock plate or shredmaster is your best bet for the rough. Buy aftermarket extended tabs or you can start by shimming the stock ones if you have the older metal ones. Also if you haven't already step your sponsons and add a intake grate.
