    XLL / XLT Ride Plate Inserts (update from 05 GPR)?

    Hopa.. sold me his IR Speed Plate. I now have the wonderful task of removing the ride plate again ---------------- What a Miserable job with the stock inserts.

    Does anyone know if the GPR insert update (new 1 piece bar) fits the XLT without mods? Has anyone just taken bar stock and drilled and tapped it?

    Anyone tried this?

    I know the grate has the same problem, butluckliy I don't have to remove that right now.

    The insert does not fit in length too short, but with some modifying you can make them work. I put them in my older 99 by shortening them you can lenghten them the same way. I have a file at Hydrotoys forum if you click in my signature where it says tuners and go to the PDF file it shows how easy it can be done just lenghten yours instead of shorten like i had to. if you do not want to do that I know Island sells some they make for the XLT

    The 05 xlt does not have inserts it has brackets like the gpr. So if you want factory ones they have them for the ride plate and the pump shoe.

    Jim,

    I looked on boats.net, didn't see them listed. Do you know a p/n?

    Thanks,

    Eric

    Hello Eric, I don't know the part number but a neighbor of mine just bought a brand new left over 05 xlt and i looked at the whole ski and noticed it had brackets on the pump shoe and ride plate instead of inserts. I wonder if you call a dealer and ask for the brackets on a 05 xlt if they can get part numbers for you.

    Jim,

    Went to a local dealer, can't find the new brackets or P/N anywhere. No left overs around to look at either.

    Hello snowrunner i just looked at my neighbors 05 1200 xlt ski again and the pump shoe and ride plate definitely has brackets from the factory. But i looked at the yamaha parts list and i cant get a part # for them. I will still try to get a part number for you.

    Thanks Jim! Don't know why Yamaha didn't update the parts lists.
