    Gap between shoe and rideplate

    My gap between the transom plate and the rideplate seems excessive. It is approx. 1/4" What is the optimal gap?

    Got my gap down to .18" and my rideplate angle is .940. I think it is fine now.

    Ron is your pump shoe sealed? I always set the pump shoe back to where it meets the transom plate. I have little to no gap between the plate and pump shoe. The most important thing is that the plate does not hang below the pump shoe.

    yes the pump shoe is sealed. I am guessing it will take a little of top end, but for now, I aint gonna worry about it. My guess is the pump shoe isnt back as far as it could be and that is why the gap is there.

    Make sure the pump shoe is all the way back and ride plate is clearenced to be all the way forward. They should touch IMO.

    I just dropped the pump shoe...what a pain in the ass to drop a sealed shoe..Any quick ideas to remove 5200 fast cure? Anyway, my shoe was set right, it was all the way back. There is no way for the plate to touch the pump shoe on mine. I elongated the holes on the ride plate, but can only go so far cause I cant get a socket on the bolt holding the rideplate on, its to close to the side of the hole. I am at a loss right now...any other ideas?

    I can't help you on the clearance issues but don't use 5200 on anything you plan on removing again. Use 4200 to put it back on.

    You can slot the holes on the pump shoe to move it back further

    I second that. I was going to put a Riva GP1300R newer style plate on a 2001 GP1200R and the gap was 1/4 inch on mine, too. I also had sealed pump shoe and PPK. I would have had to slot the mounting holes also to make it work. Oddly, the older style Riva/R and D Ride plate matched up fine, but needed shimming to get it near the pump shoe and then I started getting high speed numbers.

    I am beginning to think the plate is my problem. I have a riva 1300 rideplate and its not matching up to well.
