    New question for GP1200R

    I was looking at an aftermarket rideplate(R&D). I will mainly ride in the river and lakes here in Pa. I do not race or anything competitive. I am just a daily rider with a stock machine.

    My question is: Would I be recommended to get a ride plate, intake grate, trim tabs, etc? Will these help with slow speed porposing? Will these affect any other operation of my ski, either lose top end or slower speeds somehow?

    I see different posts that state different opinions. Thanks for any info and thanks for previous replies.

    R&D is a good plate to go with. I'm getting one soon and its going out to be cut. Get a R&D 1200 grate, while your down there get a pump plug kit and seal that pump shoe. The porposing will be pretty much solved if you seal the pump shoe. Trim tabs I have R&D extended probably gonna have them cut back to stock length. These Mods you wont lose anything but you will gain a little handling and some holeshot.

    Can we get someone to make a smiley face holding up a sign that says "Fullboogie for president?"

    if you want to reduce porpoising then I would simply add 2 - 3 washers under all 8 trim tab mounting bolts

    if you add a rideplate the ski will have a tendency to porpoise more, with a modified rideplate this problem is made worse
