    I'd take off the macc's boost chip and sell it to me, easy to remove and I don't think it'd hurt the price!

    Never really thought my modded grate was going to really work that
    good, therefore I didn't document/photograph anything.

    The water I ride in isn't stock (2 bars removed) grate friendly.

    Basically I messed around with it to get it to match my Jim's modded rideplate. It took 3-4 hours with a belt sander and a file to get it positioned where it SHOULD be. ALOT of material has to be removed.

    This year I decided that my RPM's were alittle low, so I removed the wings with the grate still on the 'ski. I am very happy with the modification as well.

    Hookup is night and day compared to the stock grate. My friend Hal, who also has an 2004 R-12X lags WAY behind in the chop with his stock grate.

    It hurts holding on after awhile, because the hook up it that good. The Honda pump is already a high pressure one anyhow.

    Also I thought I was having a problem with how my 'ski reacted to my Jim's modified plate in the rare glass conditions I encounter. Experience said I had an overstuff condition, but I couldn't believed it happened at only 60 mph. A year later, with a rideplate that was modified even more, I had an even worse overstuff condition. You could not ride at top speed in light chop or glass without drop nozzle input. Below 1/2 tank forget about it, drop nozzle or not, at WOT it would try to throw ya.

    Last year Hydrotoys suggested a Jet Works Valve to relieve pressure in front of the impeller. I was still in denial that I a pressure problem. Now after reading about the problems the RXT-X guys are having due to the larger pump gullet, I decided to do something simple. As Kerry (Rocketman) promoted on the Yamaha GPR, I drilled 3 small 5/32 holes in my plastic pump shoe (ramp) from the bottom and 4 small relief holes through the rideplate corrsponding to the shoe.

    Problem solved. No more buck, no drop nozzle input needed, no loss in speed, mean hookup. 62-64 mph in the chop with the best ride it has ever had.

    If my R-12X doesn't sell, I won't be sad, because I am starting to like it more and more, but 70 mph with comfort does sound very nice with the 15X though.(plus we are selling our Bayliner and I think I am going to be having extra passengers)
