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.

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
