    It depends what type of riding conditions you ride in. For smooth water the R&D plate with Group K mod is the fastest. The Riva Limited Edition is a good all around plate, and the shredmaster is the best for rough water, but is the slowest of these three plates in glass. I don't know much about the Pro-tec plate.

    welcome to the forum lokos. Listen to what sleeper has to say. He has done extensive testing in this area and probably has one of the fastests old school gp's around.

    he has the fastest single pipe i've ever heard of. Go with his RD/GroupK.

    Your stock plate is only good for a boat anchor. Stock 97-98 plate is WAYYYY better than yours.

    The longer earlier plate can be faster in certain conditions, while slower on true "glass" water conditions. It is vastly better at reducing porpoising compared to the shortie.

    Private Message Mongoose, maybe he has something he can sell you that is alot closer.
