Any documented gains from filling grate and plate holes on FZ?
It's big on the seadoo side, but I can find no mention of filling the holes on FZ's. I'm assuming there is nor gain or else I'd hear about it more.

Cant hurt, i guess most just do it from the GPR days and take every little they can for free, i would guess next to nothing on these machines tho

I filled in the front two bolt holes and just the front part of the grate/hull interface on my FX SHO and tamed (not eliminated) some holeshot cavitation. I intend to do same on SVHO, even tho cavitation much less of an issue.

When you hit shallow areas and ingest weeds or get something wrapped up tight in there, we like to have easy access to remove that intake grate, clear the problem and get back on the water quickly. As for the ride plate, yes I did gain maybe .5 mph on my Sea-Doo but the plugs eventually came out so for me it was a waste of time.

my buddy gained 1 mph by filling holes on grate/plate and waxing bottom of hull. Too much work and a pain to pull off when needed.
