Thread: Uneven Rideplate
04-03-2008, 08:38 AM #1
I have an old school "package" plate on my 1300. I layed it down with the bosses down on a flat marble counter top. I noticed it is very uneven, it can be rocked back & forth. Two of the bosses touch the counter top and two don't. One side is more recessed than the other (where it meets the shoe) when installed. It is not true, but I wonder if the speedo cut out is making it lean to one side on the counter top (due to the lack of weight). Any suggestions or comments?

I sent mine to a machine shop. When it was done, the plate was square to the hull and the boss plane was parallel to the bottom of the plate. Uneven bosses stress the hull mounting area.

Not unusual Brandon. Both mine have been the same way. Measure with a digital caliper and file until they are even.

Or you can lay a stock ride plate on the mounting surfaces.

I have been in the garage tweaking on it between honey do's and the baby. The wife got bit by something & her hand & arm are tingling. It's always something, hopefully it does not get any worse.

There is this one guy I know who lives in Beaumont that handles up on them pest. He is about 5-7" 145lbs, and is training for a marathon. This guy goes to work and makes a difference every damn day. His name is Barry.
We have been outside all day working in the yard, it probably came in on her clothes. The DRC does not roll with pest in the house, trust me, roaches scare me! Nasty Bastards!

Close very close and thanks for making me taller Im 5'5" but you were dead on on the weight. I quit training for the marathon after getting injured and the flu all in the same month (still running every other day though 3-4 miles). call me if you need me to get one of my techs to come fumigate your crib.
