    Will shimming the ride plate on 2012 SHO FX Cruiser pick up speed and other question?

    Stage 1 kit on mine with rear exhaust and intercooler and cooling upgrade done. Ski was going 70.2 mph then put the "New" R&D intake grate on and I know this does not sound possible but the best I am getting is 66.2 MPH. I stuck the stoke grate on last night but I have not ridden it yet. So question is has anyone heard of that much of a loss in speed due to a intake grate and if I get my speed back with stock grate will shimming the ride plate help also?

    shimming the back of the plate you will lose speed, You can not shim the front plate will hang to low. Get the plate modded gains are 2.5 on average with my modded stock plate.
