    Jim's plate..

    I know, I know.. This topic has been beat to death but I'm curious if I'll need to do any sort of pump tunnel reinforcement if I choose to send my plate out to Jim for a cut.. My current mods are.. Ribbon delete, and a scom.. I don't think my rpms will be too greatly affected, but I'm sure I'll gain a couple more mph on the top end..

    If I can safely get away with having my plate redone without reinforcing my tunnel, I'm game for it..

    any real trick to getting the plate off and then back on ? i cant imagine it being anymore than a couple bolts holding it on.. even with the "new plate" i reassemble it the same way i took it off ?

    Remove speedo wheel first, then remove plate bolts. Just don't drop the plate on your head when removing.

    I guess there's no silicone holding it on like with seadoo?

    Be careful of the speedo bolts. They were a bitchh to get off even at ZERO hours.
