?? ride plates for XLT ??
i need help with a ride plate issue..
someone out there PLEASE take a few measurements for me...
was there a year on the xlt that had a flat ride plate like the GPR????
I tried lining up a gp plate but the back holes dont line up..
and what is the measurement from the centerline of the bolt holes
front to back at hole centers?
side to side at hole centers?

did you try shimimg the plate? front flush with the hull then start adding in the rear till it goes away?

is your plate flat on the bottom?? or v shaped

my stock plate is v shaped on my 02 xlt
my RD plate is an island cut plate that is flat on the bottom. The ski is a better handler and much faster with the rd plate shimmed properly compared to stock.
Hope this helps

Daniel, The only plates that will fit with the flat bottom are the Riva and R&D. The stock plate and Pro-Tec plate both have the V bottom. If you want to shorten it try getting another plate and trimming it back in 1/4" increments.
