Need Some Measurements (SPX Parts)
Anybody with a X4 hulled XP/SPX (Not really familiar with the models just know it needs to be X4 hulled):
I need to know the following dimensions on the intake grate and rideplate:
-Width (front pad and rear pad)
-Bolt hole spacing (front and rear)
-Number of bolt holes and their pattern
-Spacing between these bolt holes
Thanks a ton...

There has to be someone locally that will let you get under their ski?
Are you trying to determine which ski the ride plate you bought for GSX is for? Did the 785 and 951 GSX share the same ride plate design? You might be better off checking that first.

I've got a carbon fiber GSX (or at least that's the VIN number on it)....
Well in reality the only thing GSX about it is the top deck.....It appears the bottom deck is something totally different (it's been suggested that it's modeled after the X4 hulled XP or SPX of the day).....
So in knowing what the rideplate and intake off one of those skis measure I'll potentially know if that's what I'm looking for....
I've already done the research regarding the GSX hulls.....I have a 800 GSX grate and plate sitting here which aren't even close and OU812 assisted me by crawling under his 951 GSX and taking some measurements which also revelaed that it wasn't close either....
So I'm left trying to figure out if this thing is off a XP, SPX, HX, etc.......Whatever it is would have to be from 1998 or earlier...

The ride plate is shaped like home plate. The front of the plate is 9" wide and the back is 13.5" wide and 14" long(with the transition to 13.5 ~half way). There are six mounting holes, plus two for the grate and the speedo wheel.
The grate is 5" wide and 13.5" long.

Who made the carbon GSX? Maybe it had a custom carbon ride plate as well? My mechanic made the hulls for Odyssey back in the day.

Chris, I think the easy solution would be for you to shoot a pic of your hull and let US identify it, instead of taking all our time trying to search for what you think it might be...
