Thread: Ride Plate

I know the ideal rideplate intake grate setup is the R&D for the 12F.
If I decide to just go for the intake grate and keep the stock ride plate, How much speed am I scrubbing by not using the aftermarket ride plate?
If I go with the whole R&D set up, I have to get the reverse gate attachment to go with the ride plate. Yes or no, the rideplate has to be tapped to install the reverse gate bracket?
There are several other mods I am planning as well.

Buy R&D récréational intake grate and ride plate.... the pro serie is too more agressive
If you don't want to loose speed in flat water, you can cut a little the intake grate like WORX intake grate (rigth and left plate only)...

Use the WORX intake and stock plate.
IF your going to do a combe then your best bet is the R&D

How much top end will I not gain by not changing the ride plate?
Does the plate have to be tapped for the reverse gate bracket??

I think that on the new ones it comes with the holes drilled but you still have to buy the bracket

IMO, I would keep the stock intake grate. Any aftermarket grate will scrub too much speed. I went from 65-66 to 62 mph with a worx grate that claims to not scrub any speed. If you really want to try one, I'll sell you my worx grate cheap.
As far as the rideplate goes, I went from 63 (stock) to 65-66.
