    2022 FX SVHO ride plate upgrade

    Anyone here running a stock ski change their ride plate and achieved better riding? Is the riva ride plate a better over all than the 2022 stock plate?

    The Riva ride plate definitely improves handling and is the way to go on the 2019+ FX.

    Are sure this is the best ride plate? You told me buying the stage 1 plus and ribbon delete will get me to 78mph but it did not.

    Yes, it's absolutely the best plate for the FX. More info here

    If you are running that complete stage 1 plus kit and have not omitted anything then you need to figure out why your speeds are lower. You should easily be going 79-80 mph with that kit and the ribbon delete. What's your speeds and RPM? It may just be that your impeller needs a slight tweak to get the RPM up in your hot climate. More info here, including a link to pitch your impeller for max rpm

    Hope that helps!

    I would expect the posted top speeds would be with the AGR version of the Stage 1 Plus tune and gasoline with plenty of octane.

    The ‘normal’ Stage 1 Plus tune provides less top speed.

    Close to sea level?

    So at sea level are you saying the stage 1 plus tune is pretty useless?

    Not at all. Every engine provides best power at lower elevations.

    The Riva Stage 1 Plus tune for SVHO is excellent. Very noticeable increase in engine power and acceleration over the stock factory tune.
    The AGR version of the Stage 1 Plus tune is even more so.

    One SVHO friend always runs the AGR version of the tune. Another uses the regular version. I am often using the Low Octane version. The AGR is the fastest, but the regular Stage 1 Plus tune is far from being ‘useless’

    Thank you for clarifying, i have most of the stage 1 plus hardwear sitting ready to go. Just wanted to confirm before purchase of tuning licience. We run at sea level in the salty liquid ��

    I’m at sea level with a top speed of 72-73 and I haven’t heard of ANYONE with a 2022 FX SVHO, stage 1 plus going 79-80 including Green Hulk.
