    Thanks for all your help

    Hi thanks for all your help with none sparking 1998 slxh, it was the stator, but its working fine now. I've just been thinking about modifications, i keep reading about extended ride plates, can any body explain the benefits??

    What type of gain or handling improvement are you looking for?
    The extended ride plate basically forces the nose down for a little better tracking and reducing porposing but it takes away some top end.

    I was thinking of getting a little more speed out, seems to do about 58mph according to the display. Also seems pretty wobbly when tryng to remount in open water??? Is that just the design, newer skis seem much easier to climb back on.

    I think that's about as good as it gets in tems of climbing aboard unless you install a step.
    The extended ride plate will more than likely take away from your top speed.

    You might want to try mounting a boarding step onto the back.
    Might make it easier to keep your weight centered as you climb up onto the seat, which should reduce the tippiness.

    They usually are spring loaded and fold up out of the water against the back of the boat once you are back on.
    Here is a picture of a Yamaha branded step, others are similar;
