Thread: GP1300R or not?

    GP1300R or not?

    Hey. I'm thinking about buying a GP1300R and this will be by first ski. My friend has two Hondas, a non turbo and a turbo.
    Can someone tell me a little bit about the GP1300R
    Does it have a good holeshot, mid and top speed?
    Does it have a wet or dry ride?
    Do they have many problems?
    Will I run circles around him?

    I'm also thinking about buying a 2006 Honda Turbo with 16 hours from the dealer that is in as perfect shape as you will ever find in a used ski. Two small scratches. For $7800 with all taxes and fees out the door. I can buy a 2006 GP1300R here for around $6500 plus taxes and fees.

    How do these bikes compare holeshot, power and top end? thanks guys

    A stock turbo Honda will probably have a similar top speed as a stock GPR. The one I rode got on plane quickly & had a good holeshot, but it's a quirky handling ski. I threw it into a high speed turn like I do with my Yamis & it hooked the bow & spun a 180...scared the chit out of me. The GPR is a much better handling ski & has tons of aftermarket availability as well as an endless supply of used parts in the forum classifieds. A few basic mods will easily get it into the low 70's. Go GPR for sure!!!

    Honda is also suspending its sale for 2010 for their PWC market and who knows if they will ever come back. They still can't sell new 05's.

    Does a stock 1300r have a good holeshot?

    Stock they have a good holeshot. But for safety reasons you should reiforce the pump tunnel and upgrade from the stock intake grate to a R&D 1200 grate.
