    98 1200XL WaveEater Clips

    I have my 1200XL tore down due to some other issues and thought now might be a good time to install wave eater clips. For the life of me, I can't figure out where to install them. All of my searching has turned up numerous pictures of where they should go, but I can't find the part or location on my motor. I have removed the stinger exhaust completely as well as the exhaust block. The picture that keeps turning up online looks like this.

    I can clearly see where the clips install here but I can't find this anywhere on my motor. I feel like an idiot for asking but after searching for several hours, I got nothing. Any help would be much appreciated.

    A Ď98 does not have power valves. Itís a different 1200 engine.

    Yep, no power valves on yours. Commonly referred to as the 65u

    Thanks, I thought I was missing something. Any recommended mods while I have mine apart? Perhaps a D-plate and chip?

    You also have a different exhaust, no cat to break therefore no need for a D plate. I can tell you, if you want a bit more power, the Yamaha cylinders have horrible port to sleeve matchup, get that fixed. Also the squish band on the head is terrible. Maybe contact Newmiller machine and send the cylinder and head to be cleaned up. That will be money well spent on the 65u.
