    Riva trim tabs

    Everyone cuts the long edges off the tabs why don't they just keep the stock ones? isn't the only thing the riva ones have is the long piece which gets cut?

    when i replaced my stock tabs i measured the thickness and the riva tabs were thinner.so i just put the riva ones on. when i took it out it was bouncin everywhere. so i took the riva tabs off and cut them and now they're fine. the r&d tabs don't have the grooves cut out of them like the rivas do.

    Riva tads I have are .200 thicker then the stock aluminum ones.

    Riva handle way better then stock cut or uncut. Uncut is better for heavy chop/surf. OEM aluminum ( not plastic ) are slighly faster.

    Don't buy new when you can find used on the forum for much less.

    Just checked with the R&Ds and they are the same as stock. Rivas are on the boat and not here. Could have sworn they were thicker and measured them.
