    Ride Plate

    Can the two plastic fittings INSIDE the ride plate be replaced by separating the plate and getting new fittings or will things not seal up right on re-assembly??

    Iirc unless you've updated to a newer rideplate, the '05 has female threads in the rideplate and the fittins are male at the ends, so no need to change anything in the rideplate like in the newer '06+ rideplates that have male threads in the rideplate and female in the fittings.

    I'm looking at modding the plate in the next few months, and have read quite a few times about the fitting breaking when trying to remove the plate before removing the fittings. I understand that I should remove the fitting before removal. Am I thinking of something else? --J

    No, you're absolutely correct. That is the fitting that always breaks when removing the rideplate.
