    best year gp800r

    I may have an opportunity to pick up a 'salvaged' 2001 gp 800r. Is that a good year?

    Are there still performance parts available both hull and engine?

    Thanks

    gp800r hull is same as 1200r and 1300r, I believe. If so, plenty of hull mods (plate, tabs, etc.) still available.

    I swear she was on a biggon!!!!

    ...yeah, livin in williamsburg I swear I saw an old pic of pocahontas ride'n a biggon!!!!!!!

    BTW, born in Pittsburgh, so hope all is well and the 'Stillers' will 7 'peat, even with Rooney in Ireland!!!!!!

    Ok, yes, I figured hull parts are for the most part interchangeble. Thanks.

    Engine; looks the the greenhulk store's got some stuff, but didn't see any complete heads/cast or pipes.

    I did see protec still makes heads/ and single pipe, I think.

    And looks like 05 was the last year.... .

    Is the hull shorter/smaller/seat or basically a 1200/1300 hull with a smaller motor?

    salvage

    did'nt mean to "harp on your parade" it's just when you mentioned "SALVAGED" i could only think of some ski that sat underwater for days without the water being drained from the engine or some other serious concern that the owner did not to deal with and its been sitting, rusting around for years. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR GOALS, there nothing like a 'classic' to show off around,BTW i also thought about get one of those kawa 440 stand ups for like $200 , always listed in craigslist, sort of a" tinker ski" to take all apart and put back togetherLOL OH BTW, ilke your music and singing on your MY SPACE page

    i am a proud gpr800 owner

    now if its the gpr hull yes there are still many aftermarket parts availbale

    as well as parts for the motor like carb mods FAs reeds mill the head crank


    but i dont feel so well about a salvaged ski

    as long as it has a title runs and looks great at a good price then go for it

    \but if u want to build a speed deamon dont waste ur time

    ....thanks jetDave; now if I can only 'sell' a song, I'll be happy.

    Yeah, I'm not looking for a top-end monster, more of an agile bottom-end wave jumper.

    I'll report more later, but the subject ski i think has a stripped prop hub that requires pulling the motor to replace it. I'm not sure how that's even possible. Someone must have jammed the shaft splines somehow.

    fly

    you won,t be able to smoke anybody out the hole with it but my guess the dry wt. on it is 600 and change, U'LL GET SOME NICE " AIR" and not have worry about cracked motor mounts or a cracked hull since you do,nt care about beaten the #hit out of it!
