    A easy question

    Hi guys....

    Ok a simple question i'm sure, have stripped my gp1300r project down to component level....resprayed,motor rebuilt and i'm now reassembling it all...it has a Dplate fitted by the previous owner, my question is does it matter how it is fitted....?ie the flat of the D top,bottom,left,right....!as looking at the exhaust it looks as if all the bolts have equal spacing alowing the plate to be fitted in anywhere....!

    Correct, it only goes in 1 way.
    with the pipe in place.

    • The "D" opening will be at the bottom.
    • The closed portion will be at the top.

    Look at the dowel pins. Both dowel pins are on the same side of the "D" opening.

    If you craft also flips upside down, the closed portion will also help prevent water from entering the motor

    (You can) put a D plate in backwards i have seen a dozen of them put wrong. The riva one line up the tabs with the stock tabs on the pipe. You can't mix it up bottom to top because of the dowel pins won't line up but you can mix it up by facing it one way or another. If it is backwards the opening won't be at the bottom it will be a little to the side.

    I also have tested it putting it both ways and if wrong it will cost you some RPM'S

    If you look at the bracket clamped on the vise it's straight across putting the D plate correct lines up straight across, If it's installed wrong it's off to one side.
