    Thumbs up 2012+ FX with Jim's plate mod and Leo's pump wedge

    Surprisingly there is no information about Jim's Performance ride plate mod and Leo's pump wedge combo done on a 2012+ FX ski. I just installed these items on my 2014 FX SVHO and was very impressed! Handling was better, even in the rough, and was faster. If you have been thinking about getting these items, contact Jim (Jim's Performance) and just get it done! You wont be disappointed!

    Thank you gus very much, Been doing that combo for a long time and yes it works awesome. One bad thing that hull has when ski is stock it plows thru the waves and very wet ride the plate mod and wedge gets rid of that. Went out with Wayne's ski today with Leo and after a full tank of breaking it in i opened it up and you know how ruff lake tarpon gets there were ton of boats they had a fishing tournament the ski went thru that stuff like nothing and was glued to the water.

    You just can't help it can you.. not going to do anything but ride it.
    Although I really love the plate on my FZ that Jim cut. So I have no room to talk

    You hit the nail on the head! That is exactly it. At first I was surprised how wet the ride was stock, then found the ski in stock form was better with bow 1 click up position. Now with the plate and wedge, neutral seems to be best. And handles better.
    Keep up the great work!

    Hey a little rideplate and wedge never hurt anything. And makes it ride better. Win win.

    I need to do that to my FX, but my stock ride plate is pitted from the previous owner keeping in the salt all the time. I'll have to send a pic to Jim to see if I need to get another plate to cut or not.

    The Modded Plate & Leo's Wedge makes a huge difference on the big azz FX's, especialy when running in the chop & offshore! Prior to installing them the FX would tend to plow bad (exactly how Jim described), especially on a full tank. With just those 2 easy bolt on parts - it REALLY wakes up the ski, gives you another 2+ mph, and adds to the fun factor too..

    Plus, they are a great gateway drug for Gus
