    Ride plate or scoop grate

    Hi people. I have 2003 gpr1200 and wanting to change either ride plate or scoop grate for an up grade. I currently have both stock. What should I try first with best results. Anyone had any success with just changing one first. Looking for a little more top end speed. Also ski sees a fair bit of choppy water. Thanks in advance.

    Start with the grate first. Be sure to get a pump shoe seal kit along with it. Difference is night and day. Good pump upgrades include a 13/19 solas impeller. A better upgrade is an 05 and up GPR pump with a dynafly 13/19.

    Do the grate first, you want a 1200 grate in chop - makes a big difference in staying hooked up.
    You can step the sponsons, not necessarily for speed but cuts down the porpoising for better ride overall.
    I'd suggest a R&D plate, if riding in chop a 'cut' plate won't really benefit for what it costs ya'. Just my two cents
