*** Please Contact For Availability On This Item
The Pro-Tec Yamaha XL800 / XL1200LTD / SUV1200 / XLT800 / XLT1200 ride plate was specifically developed for use on 3 seater Yamaha Wave Runners to reduce porpoising and improve handling. This ride plate is highly recommended for use with multiple passengers or heavier riders.
The research and development engineers at Pro-Tec have spent countless hours testing various ride plate designs for the Yamaha XL / XLT / SUV hull while developing our extended ride plate. To improve the performance of the Yamaha XL800 / XL1200LTD / SUV1200 / XLT800 / XLT1200, Pro-Tec considers the many dynamics of water flow across the bottom of the hull and ride plate to produce the best possible extended 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 XL800 / XL1200LTD / SUV1200 / XLT800 / XLT1200 extended 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 extended length 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. We have also designed our ride plate with a flat area in the center of the ride plate to improve straight line stability. 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 Yamaha XL800 / XL1200LTD / SUV1200 / XLT800 / XLT1200 extended ride plate will improve the performance of your boat and increase the fun factor for you.
All Pro-Tec extended ride plates are cast from A319 aluminum and heat treated for maximum strength. The Yamaha XL800 / XL1200LTD / SUV1200 / XLT800 / XLT1200 extended 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 extended 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 XL800 / XL1200LTD / SUV1200 / XLT800 / XLT1200 extended ride plate and Moflow intake grate have been used by riders all around the world to improve the handling of their Wave Runners.
