End Cavitation WIth Dean’s Team Yamaha Transom Plate Modification


With the increasing power and speeds being achieved with the new GP1800 hull, tuners are having to preemptively solve issues before racers and riders encounter them in a large scale. The latest salvo in keeping racers safe and securely glued to the water hails from none other than Dean’s Team who has developed a new Transom Plate Modification for both the Yamaha GP1800 and FX SVHO WaveRunners.

Available as either a service where in you ship your OEM transom plate for modification or as a completed product shipped directly to you (priced at $149 or $279, respectively), the Dean’s Team Transom Plate modification dramatically reduces cavitation and increases the water volume to the pump via a tapered design helping stabilize cavitation from the bottom of and throughout the middle of the Yamaha’s power band, improving hook-up in choppy water.

“The improved design was created to optimize water flow from when it enters up through the intake grate so the maximum amount of water volume will reach the impeller,” states Dean Charrier.

The Dean’s Team Transom Plate Modification can be purchased directly at DeansTeam.com HERE.
