    Mechanical trim tabs

    Anyone ever use them on a GP1200R? Does anyone still make them? I know R-POT used to make a set....

    I have used the R Pot - they work fine

    I no longer use them because I wanted to use shortened fixed tabs that might potentially have a slightly higher top speed

    I don't think anyone is making them any more

    R Pot and Bullet were hydraulic

    Riva and R&D used a cable

    I have used both hydraulic and cable.

    I have the riva cable operated ones on my boat now.

    Cable work great and have more tab travel then the hydraulic ones.
    Come up to a buoy, pull in the handle, the nose would dive down and you would hook right around the buoy... hard, better hold on tight and have done your forearm exercises

    I would consider taking off my Mechanical Riva Tabs and selling them for the right price.

    Make me an offer, keep in mind they are no longer in production.
    Mine are like new.
    In perfect operating and excellent cosmetic condition.

    New, depending on what year you bought them, they went for $675-$875 iirr.

    Brent,
    we are making some more as we speak. Maybe a month away. They will be Rpot copies.

    Well, actually they will be SIMILAR to Rpot, in that our back plate will be able to adjust veritcally, so that you can move it out of the way AND still use stock trim tabs.
