Be careful with your SHO rideplate inserts
The last time I removed my rideplate one of the inserts broke. I always torque the bolts to spec & they weren't seized, but when I removed the bolt about 1/2 the threaded part of the insert fell on the floor. I thought no big deal...had a local dealer replace it under warranty & just got a call today letting me know the part is backordered until F'n October!!! R&D sells aftermarket inserts for the GPR, but they told me they're not the same size as the ones on the SHO. Luckily, I will be able to pull one out of SHOdude's wrecked hull, but this could have ruined my entire summer.

That sucks! But you can always ride that beautiful black & blue GPR!

That has got to be bullshit. If I broke a rideplate insert and they told me backordered until Oct. I would be on the phone with Yamaha raising hell. I'd ask them, "So I can't ride my twelve-thousand dollar machine I bought from you this entire summer?" ARE YOU F&C^ING KIDDING ME!!!

Get your ski from the stealership (which I would never go back to one that told you OCTOBER.)
Buy a gpr one. Cut it in half, and put it in place using your rideplate as the guide. Use 5200 to hold it in place.

...and replace the bolts with some quality ones from ace hardware, or bolt depot.com.
Stock ones are crap.
