    i am almost positive it was something like that. it was awhile ago but i remember him explaining what he did to it and i think its identical.

    So, what were the results of the testing on the grate ? I haven't mounted yet.

    Also ,what changed on the R&D plate in 2003 that made it better ? can it be accomplished with a bridgeport ?

    thanks

    Form what I hear most people prefer the old style plate.

    I would'nt want that grate on my ski, but it could be the best thing going and I wouldn't know it.

    Thanks,
    Ive ridden standups for 19 years. Just picked up a GPR for the wide to ride and to play with. Basically after a few years of reading posts and listening to the Superstock GPR's I knew I needed one. I would of rather gone 4-stroke.. but for a few grand a like new GPR is fine.

    I will buy the 4-stroke standup next year if Yamaha does it.

    I will try to test this grate. I have a couple like this I like for racing my SXR. they hook good in turns.

    My ski has a Riva rideplate that looks identical to the one you have on the picture.
