    GPR triple pipes in an XLT?

    Does anyone know if the riva triple gpr 66v pipes will fit a 99 xl1200ltd? If so what is all needed for mount up?

    Riva does not make pipes they are "Factory Pipes" that Riva sells. Many people have run these on this motor with great sucess. Almost every thread you see with triples is a factory piped ski, they are the most common and popular ones used.

    One more thing I need to add, I recently bought a set of Factory triple pipes from an ex racer. He used to test for Factory pipe and he told me the set I bought had the inlets for the water relocated on the pipe for an XLT. He said they would need to be moved to run them in a GPR, due to the fact they would rub the Hull. I have not run triples in either of these applications nor have I test fitted these yet. I will soon and like everything else, I will take photos and report back my observations. Maybe somebody who has fitted these in an XLT will chime in.

    They can be fitted to the XLT, but you will have to do some reverse engineering and modification. Best thing to do is call Factory Pipe and ask them what needs to be done. The pipes on a stock boat are good for about 35hp. Definiteley the biggest hp improvement you can get from a bolt on.

    I had a local friend run them on his XLT. It ran 73mph on a limited
    1200 motor. I think he just ran the standard GPR pipes, Its possible
    you might have to tweek them a little for hull clearence, but they will
    work.
