Which SHO ride plate?
I'm thinking about putting a few mods on the SHO this season...
If I go for it, I'm pretty sure about these:
- Riva FF exhaust
- Riva PF intake
- Riva grate + R&D PPK
Don't know about the ride plate, though. Riva? R&D? Is getting one Jim's worked his magic on worth the extra $300 if I'm not racing? I don't really have a specific problem that I'm trying to solve with the ride plate (unlike the above mods), so is it even worth messing with?
The two lakes I spend the most time on are pretty rough, so increasing top speed isn't really a big deal, since I'm not concerned about bragging rights.
None of these mods should void the factory or Yami extended warranty, right?

Well, if you want the Riva plate you may be waiting until women hate shoes and shopping. R&D's plate is excellant and if you wish to pop for Jim's work on it you can't go wrong. R&D's plate provided me with much less scrubbing when turning and this will be noticable even if you are just a recreational rider having fun. Warranty I cannot speak to, but I doubt it.

I have a Jims turn key modified R&D SHO ride plate in stock ready to ship.... no waiting.

SHOBiz: What do you mean by "scrubbing?" In a hard turn, it might bounce over chop a little bit... is that what you're talking about?
GH: What are Jim's pre-modded plates modded for? Top end? Rough water handling?

If I were you I would do some research on here on jims plate. As far as I know there is a known porpoising issue with the modified plate that is yet to be solved. There is an entire thread on here discussing the plate I would read that before you make a purchase.
