help on rideplate
how much damn grinding do you have to do on the pump and nozel to get a stock unmodded rd plate to go on grinding sucks

Just enough for it to fit.
Take your time and keep checking it. I use a piece of paper between and when I can remove it I know I have taken enough material off. I use a sander and use wax on the wheel as a lubricant works quick this way.

if you want to... just so you know it has been done correctly. I had this done, Carl at Island Racing. I sent him all my stuff. He grinded my pump to fit a modded rideplate.. and it is 100% I don't have to mess with it at all. Plus as I recall it wasn't like it cost a ton.. it was a good price, and I know it is done correctly..
just an option

Grinding the pump is a nasty job, just keep at it, you'll get get it done. It's more satisfying if you do it yourself than sending your parts out.

I did my own on two skis, three pumps total it is easy to do the job correctly, no special knowledge needed. just the proper tools. Keep checking the fit. Sending parts out to be worked on is costly, time consuming and I never seem to get work back that satisfies me. I have high standards I guess.

I use engineer(prussion) blue on the pump when close to ensure your grinding the correct spot and only that area needed..

You are usually golden after you grind it that far...
