    FZ ride plate

    Is there any improvement for the FXSHO with a stock FZ ride plate? There is a noticeable difference in shape and design. I have the plate from my 2013 FZS and was gonna put on my 08 FXSHO. I'm bored and need another project..lol

    Will the computer and hull of both skis is entirely different.with everything equal the SHO is a bit slower than the FZR but the handling is slightly better.they also respond differently to pump and hull modifications so what works great for one will not work the same for the other.i have some experience tinkering with the SHO and ive pmed you some suggestions.

    Modding the stock sho plate by Jim is the way to go.

    The 2014 fzr stock plate with Jim's cut is hard to beat. I'm going to replace it with my modded vx plate once I can find one.
