R&D vs Riva ride plates
Did some searches and didnt really find the answers i was looking for. What excatly is the difference in these plates? The Riva seems to be a little more expensive on average. Which plate would do better on a ski that rides in every water condition imaginable, which would have the most top end gains? Or are they so similar that you arnt going to be able to really tell a difference unless you are closing in or breaking the 80mph mark
Ive been full of questions the past couple days . Just trying to figure out which go fast parts works best for my setup.

get the FF plate from jim or if you find a good deal on a plate you can send it to jim to have it modified. most R&D plates have skegs as well

with the ff mod does it matter which one you get riva or r&d? or does his seemingly magical touch work just as well on either plate

R&D GP1200R is the plate to get. Its completely different to the Riva.
R&D gives better results with the FF mod.
If you search on the forum, youll find a comparison of the different plates

For all around conditions the R&D will be better, And once modded it will be alot faster.
