    OEM VXR plate vs R&D ride plate FZR

    Has anyone done comparison between an OEM VXR ride plate and an R&D ride plate on the FZR. Speed and handling differences?

    I had a vxr plate on my fz and the r&d is by far better. I hated my vxr plate so much I switched back to stock 14 plate. I did how ever manage 1mph faster on the vxr plate with out the bypass

    kinda funny that up to a few month ago, the vx plate was the hot ticket....... looks like my stock vxs plate will remain a dust collector..., maybe i should just put it back on the hull thats sitting on the stand in my back yard

    Were you running the older style r&d for the pre '14 fz? I just want something better in rough water without major speed loss and I can pick up a used r&d cheap compared to spending the money on getting a '14 plate and having imodded.
    Thanks
