    SVHO FZ RIDE PLATE COMPARISON R&D vs RIVA vs JIMS CUT

    OK so I am looking at doing the ride plate now and wanted opinions on the 3 available ride plates. Riva just release there's on the web site so I would imagine there won't be any available feedback on this one yet but going off past experiences with these brands what would y'all recommend? I really am leaning toward the r&D or Riva just cause I don't want to have to send my factory off and be out a few weeks. any advise/opinions is much appreciated!!!

    I like them. But different plates work for different conditions and different speeds. It really depends on how you shim them and set it up to your riding style

    Which has the greater mph increase on a stock boat minus the rev/speed limiter on the fz svho but not lose any handling. My xpl was a beast on cornering compared to the fz but always stayed broke

    Save your time and money. You already have the best plate. It just needs Jim's magic!

    You'd be happier with the modified 2014 plate, but hey, what do I know...

    BTW -
    According to a recent test, the 2014 FZR plate with Jim's mod was 0.7 mph faster than the 2014 FZR R&D plate.
    The 2014 R&D plate had a bounce
    Jim's modified 2014 FZR plate did not have a bounce and tracked straight with good handling.
