best ride plate for rough ?
so... my motor is ok (just rebuild with carrillo rods Cp pistons valve train kit from R&D)
my AFR is ok. I've just put in the trash my old athena for going with R&D R3 program.
just finished break in period.
now... I have a Riva plate installed and a jim's VX modified is coming.
but my question is...
what is the best plate design for riding in rough water?
we ride ever in salt water and it is everytime little chop.
I mean ... 10 - 20 - 30 - 40 cm waves....
when higher we like to jump but not looking for speed.
so for 10-40 cm waves... which is the best plate?
I have also r&d intake grate.
and all the mods in my signature.

There are alot of good rough water plates out there. But the one i like is the stock sv fzr plate modded, Because you have good rough water riding and the speed is great.

The uncut stock ride plate has more lift/stability for rough water, the cut plate is for the top speed reading show off, it would loose up the ski a bit that makes the ski go faster but less stability.

Jim, for the top speed, I'd like the cut plate better but the ski will give up a bit stability especially on the rough.
