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.

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.

04 best overall
08 best looking, period
