    report on r&d two bar grate and hole filler

    after turning left upon throttle release and almost getting thrown ,i took the advice on this board and purchased a r&d two bar grate...it solved all my problems ............i filled my ride plate holes with the jb weld putty sticks...did not roughen up aluminum at all..i just mixed it up put it in the hole (bolt was covered w/duck tape) and placed a square of wax paper over putty...no sanding needed...tested it out against an ultra 150 with a 145 lb rider...pulled him real good..my rpm dropped to 7000 ???probably because i was hooked up better.

    What were your RPMs before?

    What overall gains did you see from filling the holes?

    That's a BIG drop from just adding a 1200 grate! Once you can let her rip and get a real top end number, let us know. You shouldn't see that kind of drop!
