    R&D rideplate 15f question

    So I ordered a R&D rideplate for the 15f online from R&D and I got a email that they no longer make the item.


    Will rideplate from the earlier year models such as STX-R STX 900 1100.... fit the 15F?

    Yes, STXR will fit but in my opinion a Shredmaster is a great ride plate for this ski. I ran an STXR plate for awhile and it was just "ok". R&D and Shredmaster do a much better job of getting more of the hule out of the water.

    Sorry should have made it clear I saw some R&D plates for sale on a site for the older model so I wanted to make sure it would fit. But I don't think those had the reverse gate extension.

    But yeah I am looking also into a shredmaster plate or maybe GroupK to mod the stock plate....

    the 15f R&D ride plate is still available . some stores still have it in stock I just got one for my 15f. great plate improved top speed and great handling. google the part # and some will come up that's how I found mine.

    I'll try to find the receipt when I get home from work. I guess I got lucky.

    I went through the same search last summer and I ended up ordering a Shredmaster. I had to wait about 6 months for it but it is a nice looking plate. I haven't mounted it yet so I can't tell you how it performs.

    Yeah I don’t have the patience to wait 6 months… I found a plate thanks to FireHawk but now can’t find reverse bracket.

    I am going to just let GroupK mod the stock plate… on the plus side its much cheaper at only $85 and I can get it back
    In a week.
