    Putting sho ride plate on 06 fxho

    Just changing my prop took off my ride plate and noticed its smaller than my sho oem one I have in my shed . Is it worth my putting the sho one on or just stick with the original rideplate is there any pros or cons ?

    will fit and handling will be better but its gonna slow your top speed down.

    4 miles an hour slower. I put one on my 06 FX and had significantly better handling but way too slow, Julio...

    I went with the Riva plate. You can probably get a decent deal on one of them since they haven't made a ski since 08, Julio...

    Are you guys running the SHO Riva plates, or the FXHO Riva plates?
    I'm looking to replace the one on my 05 FXHO, for better handling mainly, tired of the bow wandering, and 2 person riding just sucks. I ride in both brackish waters with light chop, and glass rivers.
    Just installed Worx sponsons but have not been out yet with them.

    Guess right now i'm considering the Riva made for the 04+ FXHO.

    Ok, but i'm not sure if it was the Riva specifically made for the FXHO or the one made for the SHO (both Riva). I think I read a post where he used both....
    I'm not too concerned with a loss of top speed, I have a Polaris if I want to go fast.

    Right but from what I have read, both fit. Is he saying get the riva HO plate or the riva SHO plate?
