    Early '98 GP1200 trim tab

    Tore up one of my plastic trim tabs at the end of last season. Where can I get a new plastic one or two new aluminum ones? It's the early '98 GP so the pro-tec tabs are no good, as those are for late '98 models. And I can't find the OEM part anywhere online. It doesn't appear to even exist in any OEM schematics. Thanks, guys.

    The 97 oem tabs were plastic also,should be the same as early 98,yamaha changed that later in 98,even if you find oem 97 plastic tabs you do not want to use them as they will break off,i bought some aluminum tabs off of this site,a guy was making them,i will try to get you his info.do a search on here for 97 yamaha gp trim tabs and you will probably find his information.

    Thanks. Emailed George. I actually emailed him last year, too, but at a different email. He never responded to that one. Hopefully I hear back from him this time. I also PMed another guy who I saw manufactured his own tabs in another thread. Thanks for the help.
