    Anyone ever heard of an R&D Ride Plate cracking?

    Sold a R&D plate to a guy on ebay. He said it is cracked, warped and thinks because it is so damaged (pitted) it is unusable. Says it looks like someone tried to fill and sand a crack out of it.

    When i had it in my hands ( i won it on ebay but never mounted it) it was aluminum in color and while very pitted on the bottom side, i never noticed a crack.

    Have you guys ever heard of these things cracking or for that matter, warping?

    What ski was the plate for?

    I have a R&d grate on my ultra 150 and the cast quality is kind of bad. Looks like lots of air bubles in the casting. I think the yamaha guys break alot of the r&d grates.

    Send it back to R&D. The worst thing they could do is send it back to you.

    Sorry guys, its been a while since i was on the site.

    Plate is for a Kawasaki 750, 900, and maybe 1100

    This guy is taking forever in his replys on the his claim. Hopefully this next one goes past 20 days. then i get my money back as it is being held right now.

    My ebay auction is here:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...3AIT&viewitem=

    The auction i bought it from, with bottom pics is here:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...1212&viewitem=

    Thanks for helping out guys.

    I honestly think the guy either: bought it for the wrong ski, or he damaged the plate and/or wrecked the ski...it was exactly 20 days after he got it that he filed the complaint...you cant file a complaint through paypal after 20 days.

    Something smells fishy, like the wear ring has seen water recently...
