    My ski will never see a RIVA grate again. It got ripped off while riding and I had to replace the pump shoe and rideplate, not to mention 3 weekends down.

    I have the stock grate back on, but I also have a worx grate and girdle on my workbench ready to be installed soon.

    3 6mm across the back and 1 8mm in the front. Neither one of my X boats had anything but the bolts securing the grate.

    i think its "right stuff " holding it on. it doesnt budge around where the one bolts is............its ready to come off however at the 3 bolts...but when i pull down where the 3 bolts were it must be hitting the ride plate correct?
