Improving stability on SHO.
My SHO is completely stock and I routinely travel in choppy water in Miami so I don’t get the opportunity to open up the Ski as much as I would like. I am not really looking to increase speed but rather stability in the chop. Does a new intake grate and ride plate really make a big difference?

Get a Riva grate. Stock ride plate is better in the chop IMO

I agree, the intake grate made a huge difference. I have the R&D ride plate and I only put that on when I am on calm water. The stock ride plate is the way to go in the ruff.

I haven't tried R&D's grate, but the Riva made a nice improvement in rough water hookup & so far the stock plate has proven to work best offshore. I'm going to be testing phillip_gpr's -1* wedge with Jim's plate to see if it helps with the bounce in flat water, but I'll try it with the stock plate offshore too...I'll post the results once I receive it. He is also making a -2* which will probably work well for your type of riding.

I have both Riva's and R&D's intake grates. IMO, the R-D Aquavain Intake better hook-up for off-shore riding. And I also agree with the fellas, stock ride plate defo better for off-shore riding (unless you are deliberately trying to get big air, lol)

You might take a look at this threed - while my experience is mostly with the GPR I think some of the ideas I talk about might also apply to the SHO/ FZR as well
If you want to try a -1 or -2 pump wedge I still have several loaner wedges available to try
