Rive ride plate question
I just got a Rive ride plate and installed it on my Ultra 260.
Do I need it silicone the ride plate anywhere?
I seen a Ultra with the same Riva plate at the shop and it had silicone all around it.

There was no silicone at all in the ride plate area from the factory.

yeah my 260x has no silicone on the ride plate either just on the intake grate. put it on, it cant hurt. the intake grate is more important as the silicone keeps the water smoother when entering the pump so it cavitates less. the water that touches the ride plate has nothing to do with thrust as its after the intake to the pump( unless u going backwards). but it might give u a fraction of a MPH if you silicone it up.

Hmmm I did not know that the 260 did not have a siliconed ride plate...I guess someone with a 260 and aftermarket plate needs to answer this one....
