Ride plate shims
I have a 97 GP760 and just bought a used "Pro Tech" ride plate for it.
Question is should the plate have about 3/8 of recess from the intake grate surface or should I shim it to get more flush with the hull ?. I know about shimming the far end as I had some luck with stock ride plate doing this. This new plate is shorter than stock one is this normal?
Just trying to get it to handle better. already has trim tabs on hull.
I like my ski even thoe it is not fast :P
going out this weekend to have fun

I shimmed my plate flush on my gp800 but it didn't seem to make a difference in speed or ride. I would try it though, since the variations between hulls/plates could prove it to benefit you. In other words, it didn't help me, but it could help you.

You know it I have a 1300 but absolutely love the older 800 as well. What you don't have in speed you make up for in "cuttin up" fun!
