    Thanks Adam, that is good advice for everyone still running these engines. I did put aftermarket couplers on my powervalves 20 years ago with the wave eater mods. Much more solid than the OEM parts.

    My 97 GP 1200 ha(d) a light blue, turquois color cover. The 2001 GPR had a dark blue (Yamaha blue) cover. Not sure but I think the 99 GP had the darker blue cover originally.
