    Riva Groovy Ride Plate, what will it do for me?

    What would a Riva Groovy Ride Plate do for my 96 1100 Waveraider?

    I've read some mixed review all over the place. from garbage to not worth it, etc.
    I ride in the bays & see everything from dead smooth (where i've topped out @ 59mph(according to cluster) to inlet 'chop'.
    I am mostly looking for better turning, carving. Are there any other better plate options?
    TIA

    I installed a Pro-Tec ride plate on my 760 Raider about a year ago and have to admit I'm pretty damn happy with it. I've been told to add washers to the back of the plate to minimize porpoising but just haven't done it for whatever reason. I am told that the shorter Pro-tec plate is good for speed but counterproductive in chop. With that said, I've really enjoyed the plate overall. Don't have any experience with the Groovy so can't comment on that. Good Luck whichever route you decide to go and glad to chime in with a fellow Raider owner.
