    Almost pooped myself today!

    Was all excited to try out the new rideplate. Jumped on the ski, mounted the GPS and was on my way. Got to 64.1mph and was about to get to the back of the ski to see what it can do when all of a sudden, out of nowhere the ski launches in the air and starts to buck violently. Instantly off the gas and thanking god I stayed on. I read before the worx intake grate didnt play well with modded aftermarket ride plates....well, something isnt playing well together and I think that maybe the issue. Anyone got a R&D intake for sale??? lol...I am a little gun shy now to get on it again...scared the heck out of me!

    I don't hear much about the WORX intakes... I have one on 1 of my XLT1200's... Don't know if I like it or not, but that ski doesn't really have many mods on it.

    Its a Kerry spec Riva plate modded by Dan Berg at DB Racing. I believe philip did some testing and modded a worx intake to perform better. With the stock rideplate, the worx performed admirably, no bucking present. I thnk the safe thing to do is get a R&D double bar 1200 grate like I should have done from the get go...but that was before I found Greenhulk...live and learn, key is to keep living so I can keep learning...
