    Jims FF Riva Plate

    This plate is fast and his customer service is awesome. Called him with my test results and he tells me it has more speed to give. Going to make some minor adjustments and then post my results. Best bang for your buc for sure.

    2007 GPR stock except r&d 1300 intake grate. Did not get to test in the chop yet. My prior speed runs were in cooler drier calmer conditions with the stock plate. I will post my results after tweaking and testing both plates back to back in the same conditions. Should be an easy test since it is only four bolts.

    3 ft chop would be like offshore for me. I do not do that very often.

    You can just shim the FF plate back down and it will handle the rough much better.

    When ever I ride...I look at the water before launching and adjust the ride plate to match.

    +1 when you find the sweet spot write your numbers down for your shims
    and same thing for the rough water.
    if you buy the u shaped shims then it makes the change even faster by not having to remove the bolts all the way.
