    Is my pumpshoe hanging down ??

    Hi! Sorry for another new thread but all threads about pump shoe are old and dont get a proper answer from it.

    Have recent seal my pump shoe on my gp1300r.
    used marine sealent instead of the plug kit, have read alot about a proper installation and did it very good (i think!) with not to much sealent.

    But after just hitting 62,7 on glass water i was worried about the shoe hanging down.
    And today i put on a Riva plate and it doesent look 100% right, a gap between the shoe and plate of about 0.5 - 0.7cm.

    Anyone who can se by these pictures if something is wrong?

    You must check the transition from hull in front off the shoe and the shoe itself.
    Shoe should be 0,07 inch recessed from hull.

    From the pics it is hard to say for sure. But it appears that the recess of the ride plate being just slightly up where it joins the pump shoe is correct. The gap between the shoe & plate can be filled with clear silicone. Take a four foot ruler or straight edge and place on hull just in front of intake grate all the way back to extend to end of ride plate .... the angle @ the back of the ride plate & the straight edget should range about .75 to .95 of an inch. Good Luck

    Ok thanks!
    will check the angle from the grate and back.
    should i put some washers on the front bolts on the plate to reduce the step from the shoe and get more angle??

    straight line on hull front of intake grate.


    the shoe is A good bit över that line.


    angle from shoe to plate.

    Again that looks about right. What is the angle height ?
