    rideplate mod

    Is there any mods that i can do to my stock rideplate on my 2000 xl limited?? I have read about shimming, but im unsure as of where to shim and how much... But is there anywhere that i can grind/file down to gain some mph's? Im about to install a gpr 5 degree nozzle also if that matters any... Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated! I just want see spending up to 500 for a rideplate! Im pretty sure thats what i will end up doing though! If i can get 2-3 mph out of modding the stock one i will call it good!

    thanks guys

    Kurt

    Group K offered a mod to the stock rideplate for around $60.00.

    It doesnt pay to mod the stock plate on the xlt-- An "unmodified" R&D plate for around 150$ would yield better performance than a modded stocker. Of course a full modded plate yould give the ultimate performance. You have to decide whats in your budget.

    well worth the money on a modded r&d ride plate, I gained 4+ mph on my gpr just from the ride plate over stock. Its the cheapest mod when you consider the $$$ amount versus the amount of speed you gain.
