    Help w/ Trim Tabs on 99 GP760

    I just got a brand new Riva GP Performance Trim Tab Kit (Part # RY2717). I though I was pretty lucky to score this, but they do not look like tabs (at least not from what I have seen). They are very small. I purchased these to help stop the constant bouncing in the water. Will these help me?? They look to small to do much of anything.

    Thanks

    Anyone have a picture of these installed on a ski? It looks like they just extend the hull about 1/2 inch?

    Thanks

    this is true, because of the hull update are basicly just a fillet.. RIVA felt that the hull benifited from that little bit more.. the 760 hull is best set up with the long plate off the 97 /760 and about 1/2 inch of shims on the back two bolts ..or an after market long plate such as a shred master( no shims needed I hear)OR the watercross i'm using(shims needed).. THESE WILL SCRUB SPEED SET UP LIKE THIS BUT WILL RIDE MUCH BETTER!!

    Tau cetti made tabs for the 99 that are a lot bigger I would try those
    Or no tabs I run no tabs on my 99 1200 I had some but I sold them rather than install them.

    I just picked up a Riva plate a few weeks ago for this. Sounds like it is not the ideal plate, but I guess I will give it a try with some shims. If it is not great, I will look for a longer plate. Thanks guys!
