Riva v. R &D unmoddified plate/grate
Thank all of you so very much for helping with my first two mods (d-plate and race filter) on my 06 GP 1300. This forum is awesome!!!
Next I want to do a plate and grate combo. Unmodified, which do ya'll recommend? I'm leaning toward Riva cause I still do rec. riding and feel the skeggs will limit me, and want more top-end.
BTW, the first two mods boosted my lower mids and am very very pleased, thanks again!!!! (Though I'm not sure it will ever touch my unmodded 02 stxr.)

i'm pretty sure the riva 1200 grate is faster than the r&d...couldnt really tell you on the plate though, most go with jims modded r&d plate on here

Thanks all. Jim, I thought 'technically' the Riva plate was supposed to be faster....I was checking some old threads and emails.... .

How much of an increase in speed do you see with a stock r&d plate?

....apparently only a few mph.
I'm also researching which grate will scrub the most speed. I understand the 1200 grate is basically what Riva & R&D offer for the GP1300 in the kits, not the 800. And although the 800 is faster (cause of angles and such....) it's prone to breakage and cavitation.
I'm wanting the 1200 version/design or equivelent, but am concerned it will scrub speed in glass. I'm not racoing so I don't care about WOT in chop. I've read Worx makes one but might be sim. to the 1200 type and may scrub.... .
I welcome any correction here... .
