    Best year gpr?

    In your opinion, what is the best year gpr made? Looks and performance both considered. My vote has to be for the 07. Mostly because its a newer ski and i think the black and gold is sooo sexy.

    Even though the gp1300r in stock form is faster and looks better in my opinion , I think that the 2000-2002 gp1200rs that came with carbs and powevalves are the best for modding . The 1200 cylinders are ideal for bigbores. And carbs are faster then efi.

    03 was by far the worst year made in terms of quality. They pooched up the pump tunnel and sunk a whole bunch of skis. A recall was done (half-assed) and lots of those floating time bombs are still out there, unfixed.


    00-02 was a crankshaft nightmare, and a power valve nightmare. The cats would explode due to raw fuel in the exhaust. The reeds would eat themselves on aftermarket setups due to burning the edges.
    03 would sink due to the tunnel fiasco.
    03-04 can still have power valve issues. Cranks aren't as bad.
    05-08 pump tunnels, cranks, leaking head gaskets.

    All GPR's suffer from a poorly designed front snout and flywheels eventually break off the snout.
