Question - running with no trim tabs
With all else being the same, if I remove my shimmed (.200 in) R&D trim tabs and run with no tabs what change should I make to my rideplate angle?

Hello Philip, I would say a good starting point should be about .880 to .920
MINE WAS SET AT .950 WITHOUT TABS

Phillip, just make sure when you run without tabs that you do not go wide open throttle and make a sharp turn, you will lose control of the ski. It happened to me and a buddy of mine. I got lucky, I went in between 2 trees and 20 feet into the woods without a scratch when I lost control of mine. Just be careful, its fun to ride without them if your just going in a straight line or some small turns.

I have ran off and on without tabs since 01'.Both my ski's have full handling on them for this last season.Phil,i ran my triple in 03' without tabs and stock 01' pump, skeggless plate @ .880.There was no measuring system back then but when i got the package,it measured at .880,i had the ski on and off the trailer for 4 hours till i found the sweet spot.My triple was only a 1200cc going 75mph.

I would leave the angle the same and stay on the seat. Slowly move back until you find out how far you can go.

.930 with the extension.
a 1200 grate will cause the pump to overstuff sooner then the 800 grate.
a 1200 grate will require a slightly different pump configuartion then with a 800 grate.
make sure your shoe is completely sealed....i ran into MULTIPLE issues with an unsealed shoe going over 80. if you run a modded shoe it is critical that the shoe be sealed. use a new seal on the back of the shoe to transome..also, use a big c clamp to ensure the shoe is absolutely tight to the transome plate while sealing/bolting up. the rear bottom lip of the shoe should be FLUSH to the back of the transome plate. leave the c clamp in place for 24 hours before removal and final install of pump assembly.

I think we all use different angles based on our weight.
