    Ride plate shimming.

    I added a R&D ride plate to my 96 raider 760, and wow what a difference! The plate coupled with the Pro-Tec extended nozzle really makes it handle great now. One thing I noticed though is with trim in the bow up position the nose wants to porpoise on flat water now. Do I shim the forward part of the plate, or the aft part? Any input is appreciated. Thanks!

    Why are u using bow up trim in flat water? If u angle plate so it is higher in rear u are essentially doing same thing as bow up. If u are to much bow up u might be on the egde of nor getting enough water into intake grate at full throttle....if that makes any sense?
