    groupk rideplate on 15f

    has anyone tried or running this set up on a 15f? ive read that there mod to a 1100 di and 12f rideplate will give you a little more speed by raising the bow up. i would assume it would help a 15f as well.

    I have the group-k modded ride plate. They started doing them some time ago for the 1100cc three seaters, but it works well with the 15f as well. All they do is mill the back of the plate so the ski rides higher out of the water (less friction = more top end). Ski still seems to handle very well at all speeds and it's cheap, but I haven't ridden another 15f with the R&D plate to compare it to. I do know my friends Honda F12x kicked my a$$ before I put the Riva intake, exhaust kit, and solas prop, along with the modded plate. Now I eat his lunch out of the hole and run about the same as the Honda on top end. I will say he has the fastest Honda I've seen yet, I watched him run side by side with a Ultra 250 several times, as long as the water is smooth it's a very close race, so now I'm kinda itchin to run against a 250 or a RXT to see how I hold up.

    The mod is for the stock plate and it's only $70.00 + shipping, so I figured it was worth a shot.

    does the 15f seem to porpoise more with the modded plate?

    i emailed groupk and they told me the mod helps 15f's as well. didnt get any numbers but i would imagine 1-2 mph. said it was now 75 bucks to mod your plate with a 4-5 day turnaround. im assuming once they receive your plate.
