    2015 FX Ride Plate Cut

    I've seen a lot of posts talking about how good the Jim's ride plate cut is. I have a 2015 FX. What kind of improvement (or not) would I see on this. I messaged Jim's on here but did not get a response.

    Is this worth the money?

    Rideplate mods are always a must do especially on big skis like the FX.Gets the nose up of the ski out of the water and atleast a 2mph speed increase without having to touch the motor at all.When you look at what other mods with similar speed increases cost its a no brainer IMO

    3- 3.5 mph gain and bow will stay more out of the water rather than plow through it. I also added a Leos pump wedge as well.

    Do you have to do the pump wedge also or will just the ride plate be ok?

    Or would I be better off with this https://www.4-tecperformance.com/ind...oducts_id=6569? It is cheaper than sending my current plate in to be modified and it’s my understanding it will fit on my 2015. Correct?

    Yes it will be ok. Modded stock plate is the best.
