Yamaha GP760/GP800/GP1200 Performance Ride Plate
The research and development engineers at Pro-Tec have spent countless hours testing various ride plate designs for the Yamaha GP760 / GP800 / GP1200 hull while developing our performance ride plate. To improve the performance of the Yamaha GP760 / GP800 / GP1200, Pro-Tec considers the many dynamics of water flow across the bottom of the hull and ride plate to produce the best possible performance ride plate available. Ride plate length, shape, lift and fit are all necessary for proper function and optimum performance from a ride plate. The Pro-Tec Yamaha GP760 / GP800 / GP1200 performance ride plate will improve handling, improve acceleration and reduce porpoising without sacrificing top speed. Handling and porpoising are improved by the additional lift created by the ride plates design to keep the bow of the hull planted in the water. Planting the bow of the hull into the water provides better and more precise cornering allowing you to go faster through the corners resulting in lower lap times and more success on the race course. Better handling also reduces rider fatigue allowing you to go faster for a longer period of time. It doesn’t matter if you are a professional racer, amateur free rider or weekend recreational rider, a Pro-Tec GP760 / GP800 / GP1200 performance ride plate will improve the performance of your boat and increase the fun factor for you.
All Pro-Tec performance ride plates are cast from A319 aluminum and heat treated for maximum strength. The 11-124A GP760 / GP800 / GP1200 performance ride plate is powder coated silver and the 11-124F GP760 / GP800 / GP1200 performance ride plate is powder coated black. Powder coating the ride plate provides corrosion protection and a long lasting professional finish. For the ultimate in performance it is recommended to use a Pro-Tec performance ride plate and Moflow intake grate together. This combination will improve handling, reduce porpoising, improve acceleration, reduce jet pump cavitation and improve rough water hook up. The Pro-Tec Yamaha GP760 / GP800 / GP1200 performance ride plate and Moflow intake grate have been used by customer all around the world to improve the performance of their GP760’s, GP800’s and GP1200’s.
Pro-Tec performance ride plates and extended ride plates are also available for many other Yamaha personal watercraft models and offer the same performance benefits as our GP760 / GP800 / GP1200 performance ride plate.
