    R&D SL Speed Plate

    On my 95 sl750 and 96 sl780 there is quite a bit of porpoising as everyone has experienced with theirs. I have found several threads stating good results with ocean pro plates but nothing with a RD SL Speed Plate. Would this plate help with handling?
    Also will different intake grates help? I have read about different pump wedges, what about using something like that.
    I will include a pic of the plate that I have. Thanks everyone!

    Do not confuse porpoising at speed with 'handling'.

    Things which can reduce porpoising include;
    Longer ride plate
    Ride plate with less or no rise angle towards the rear
    Reduced pump wedge angle, or trim nozzle set to a down angle
    More weight up front
