    How much is a GP1200r

    Like the title says, im selling my XP and looking for a new ski in the spring. Im just curious how much a clean yamaha GP1200r costs, any year.

    EDIT: Also, how reliable are they. Anything to look for if I happen to look at one over the winter?

    You can probably find a decent one for about $3k+. The better condition it is , the more it might be. The gp1200r in stock form is very reliable.

    +1

    With that said, if you DO decide to buy one, make sure you budget a few mods into the asking price, or look for a ski that already has: a pump plug kit to control cavitation, WaveEater clips to prevent the powervalves from dropping into the cylinders, and a d-plate to replace the catalytic converter. Those three additions will make the ski very reliable.

    03-04 has powervalves and since 05 none powervalve motors.
    And since 05 an up there is also a different pump in the ski - HO pump with 87mm nozzle.
    What else?
