    Finally, some success today!

    Conditions were 62 degrees and 64% humidity. I was riding on the Mississippi River today at an elevation of 750' ASL. Since I was experimenting with a new Jim's FF plate and shimmed tabs, those holes were not filled. With an un-touched 800 grate installed, the previous best speed was a 77.7 @ 7250 with a 14/23 DF and all holes filled. Today I saw an average(both directions) of 79.1 @ 7100 with a 15/25 DF. I feel like I'm finally on the right track with my setup. There was no buck or side to side bounce that I used to get.

    I can't expain how excited I am today. Since going big-bore, it's been one problem after another and A LOT of money thrown at this machine. Now, I can taste 80 MPH and all that time, effort, and expense seems worth it.

    Didn't measure the shims on the plate. I just have it down as far as possible in the front without hanging below the shoe on the sides and adjusted to .950" at the rear. The washers under my stock metal tabs are .047" on all corners. Those tab shims really cured my side to side action. I don't know how you guys run without tabs. My ski will hop side to side and up and down without them. It's a wild ride.

    Great, thanks! It was installed today. No question that was part of my gain.
