  1. Re: SXR 800 Carbon Fibre Ride Plate - Questions.

    I had thought / wondered about this. A standard ride plate would be held in place by the mounting bolts but none of the strength would be dependant on the mounting .... With a flexible or weak plate,...
  2. Re: SXR 800 Carbon Fibre Ride Plate - Questions.

    Okay, so not a near death experience, haha. I'm guessing that it was a OEM ride plate that you were running, or it would have been more noticeable?
  3. SXR 800 Carbon Fibre Ride Plate - Questions.

    I own an X2 but have been working on a SXR 800 and decided that while it was in my posession, I would make a carbon fibre bedplate and ride plate... because, why not. I have already made a post about...
  4. Re: Carbon Fiber Fibre Bedplate - SXR, SX, SXi X2 ...

    It looks like I'm probably moving across the country for work in a few weeks, and will be gone for months, so I'm not sure when I will be able to make more. :(
  5. Re: Carbon Fiber Fibre Bedplate - SXR, SX, SXi X2 ...

    I don't have a special price for members... not yet anyway. These will likely be quite limited production as it takes me about 3 days to make one, start to finish, so it sucks up a lot of my time.

  6. Re: Carbon Fiber Fibre Bedplate - SXR, SX, SXi X2 ...

    Current bid is $330 Canadian on the one I have listed. It ends Saturday Sept 25 2021

    If / when I make more, I will probably be selling them $300 - $400 US . It depends on the cost of materials at...

    Thanks !! It was a heck of a lot of work.
  8. Carbon Fiber Fibre Bedplate - SXR, SX, SXi X2 ...

    I've made a few carbon fibre bedplates and have listed one on Ebay. I plan on making a few more but I may not be able to do so till spring.

    Listing # on Ebay is 203610401549 I made a post about...

    Oh yeah ? Like a proper test facility? What sort of testing / data? I sent one to the Jet Ski Brothers on YouTube for testing on their 1100 swap SX, but an actual test would be cool.

    I made a Carbon Fibre Bedplate

    I'm about a thousand feet in over my head with my current X2 project. To say that I jump all over the place is a huge understatement ... I'm like a 6 year old playing hopscotch.

    ANYWAY. While...
