    Welcome K. No good ride plate ideas here. I'm more interested in how you hit 73 on those mods. Those are great numbers. Any speed tips you can offer? Thanks.

    I would be willing to bet that the holes on his rideplate have been filled in and that is how he is getting those speeds

    im telling you guys, the difference is that dramatic!!

    Yeah Jerry, My holes been filled in. I used silly-cone, works perfect. I will have some results on my ski this weekend. My pump was sent 3-day and left yesterday. So I'm waiting. I know crazy-K, he rides with us sometimes. I heard this past week-end there were alot of rxps on the lake I ride on. Wish I were there to kick some butt

    Ya Frank,Lots of rxp,s out saterday and you would have killed all of us.
    As fas as my top speed,Yes jerry I have filled my holes in my ride plate
    but my intake grate is not filed yet.And the bolt holes in my intake grate wouldnt hold the syclone it fell out this time i will rough it up.My max speed was this saterday on the buzzer.it was 65 deg ish and almost no humidity.no pump wedge,I have modded my nose to flow air and I extended my riva air filter hinda like Jerry but not quite I still use the
    white basket and I drilled holes in it and moved my filter right behind it.
    that is about it.just ppg prop and exaust mods free flow and w box.
    The speed supprysed me and I was pumped about it. I will post pics when I find my dig camera charger sorry.
