    aah, I was just about to buy a newer Riva plate, now you got me debating which one to go for. Decisions, decisions...
    Is it bolt in ready to go on a 300 or would I need to modify it some for everything to go where it needs to?(besides the speedo wheel cutout)

    Nope DH it won't fit I never tested it out on the water,The plate was designed without the trim pipe under the nozzle that the 250/260 doesn't have and the 300 does..

    Stick with the 300 Riva..

    Alright, thanks. I'll just get the 300 plate. I have heard of guys getting great speed with this plate on a 300, I guess that's after modding the plate some.
    GLWS!

    So would I...I did a test fit after grinding out a section on the other side where the trim pipe would hit also added a 1* wedge which raises the pump nozzle that would raise the trim pipe and added washers on the back bosses ,but once I wrenched down the bolts it still wouldn't clear..

    Maybe somebody who's done it might comment...

    Easiest way to make it fit (you probably wont like) is to build a little bracket along with all the other stuff and make it a "fixed" nozzle, secured from the top. Nozzle is Still adjustable just not on the fly.... ill post some pictures tonight if i can remember.

    At that you'll still have to mill out a small spot....

    Hey guys, I've heard this plate will fit the 300 and I have one left over from my 250, is there anyone who has made it fit with the trim still functional? I ride smooth flat river water and would love to try this, thanks.

    Ok ok let break this down piece by piece lol ..

    You took the trim cable joint and put it on top of the steering nozzle and doesn't look like OEM, looks like a steering cable joint from somewhere and put a bracket to help support it and it seems you are bringing the trim cable from the hull thru a different part of the transom wall which must be a fitting of somekind ...Then you moved the strainer inlet hoses to the Side with looks to me like different Venturi nozzle..

    like to see more pics..
