Yamaha throw off replacement

I have a Yamaha snare that I need a replacement throw off for. I think the original is the B Type mechanism. The butt plate is stripped, so I'll definitely need a replacement for that as well.

I'm having a heck of a time finding a replacement, or even a part number, as the search on the Yamaha parts site is seemingly down. I have a domino retroplate, so I can fit a few different throw offs, the problem is that the spacing for the mounting screws on the butt plate look to be 2.25" and I'm not having much luck with finding a replacement at that size. I really don't want to drill this shell if at all possible.

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

The drum is a 12" Musashi. Got this drum second hand, and the throw was pretty trashed. Here are some pics. I talked to someone at Yamaha, and they told me that the release has been discontinued. Maybe the throw-off that is on the current line of Stage Custom snares would fit? If so, I'm not sure of the part numbers or exactly where to find them

Thanks

I don't know if the Rock Tour snare has the same hole spacing, but a guy on the drum forum site used a Gibraltar replacement for one.
