    Mine is supposed to be arriving tomorrow. We'll see what it does for the 2019 FXHO.

    If possible, would be great if you could swap them at the lake so both runs were within 15-20 min of each other.

    Mine arrived today. I see already a void on each site of the ride plate between the mounting bolts and the surface that mates with the hull needs filled. Made lighter that way but I think needs filled just like grates.

    4-5 footers today in Lake Erie so not a good day for a test. Will fill the voids before installing. I'll try to swap at the lake if the ramp/parking area isn't busy.

    Trying to picture the voids you are referring to. Can you make a photo?

    Why do you think this is Ďjust like the intake gratesí?

    I suppose water could seep into the voids and be trapped in there. And that might be a valid reason for filling the voids.

    Unlike the intake grate voids, the ride plate voids cannot affect acceleration or jet pump hook-up nor induce jet pump ventilation.

    I was thinking the same thing. Don’t think I’m gonna bother filling mine.

    Looks like it may trap a little water, but probably not a problem. I would probably just fill them with some sealant to make me feel better.

    I’ve noticed that my stock plate traps quite a bit of water on top of the plate (in the tunnel) even though I elevate the nose pretty high when storing it on the trailer.
