Rideplate Removal Strategy
What's your strategy? .... my back hurts, my knuckles are bleeding, i broke a screwdriver, and I have shims and wonder bars jammed under it in all directions... i'm going to bed. lol Maybe when I wake up in the morning it will be on the floor and fell loose wishful thinking
i have the entire thing broken loose and all silicone and glue is cut. it's caught up across the entire front and under the pump support now... i ALMOST thought about the sawzall

I read that you are supposed to use a hydraulic jack sandwiched between wood. It goes where the pump is and pushes the rideplate off the ski.

When you sand down the shims in the back you don't have to remove the whole rideplate though ??

If you think the ride plate is bad... try replacing AND realigning the ride shoe...mine broke right after the intake grate. NO... I didn't hit anything!
