    about 30 thou, you should be able to fit a nickle in between the shoe and your straight edge.

    Dont get so hung up on that nickel (most nickels are .070-.075)... just make sure it is even front to back and at least .050 recessed.

    Take a flat body board hand sander using 60 grit and block sand the mating surface of the shoe the necessary amount to get the clearance you want. Thats the way i did it..

    Listen to Captain Nemo...you can sand the surface flat and flush, get a micrometer to help you. DO NOT leave one side cock-eyed, make sure they are the same width after sanding.

    Sand..measure..sand, measure..you can get a straight edge on it and see how bad it is from the factory. Don't get carried away and always "dry" fit the shoe up into the tunnel and measure your progress.

    Oh...forget about the sledge hammer..it's too messy.

    If you are using a pump plug kit, make sure the plugs do not stick up past the surface of the pump shoe to the hull. I've seen older pump plug kits stick up, and I've seen some newer pump plug kits sit recessed.

    +, all the advice given above^

    Please make sure that shoe is straight.
    This one below, the plugs were recessed

    The Riva 1200 grate has proven to be stronger and faster then the R&D, (at least for the GPR). Jerry's SS 800 grate is the ultimate in durability but will slip a little out of the hole. I wouldn't mod either one.

    A plate from Jim's performance shimmed to your riding style will take care of the rest.
