    To trim or not to trim

    I have a 98 GP1200, its in pretty good shape except for the trim cables are junk and the rear one is broken. the rear cable is clamped in place so it wont move. Most of the parts are there and I would like to fix it. I am new to this so some of the question may seem simple but I have to ask.
    What difference does the trim position make, up verses down and when should it be used.
    Second question is, Who makes good replacement cables. I can find the front cables but not the rear, the clamp for the rear is also missing.
    Thank you, THE OLD MAN

    Watch ebay. The 97-99 GP760,800, and 1200 should all be the same cable setup. And it makes a HUGE difference on the GP machines which are well known for their porpoising antics.

    Thank you sir, I think I may restore the ski over the winter. It's in good shape but I would like it to be in "new" shape.
