    Strange GPR craigslist ad

    I guess this is a knock off Yamaha jet ski? I have heard of them but never seen one.

    That is a Chinese Knock-off. They are a real POS.

    I wonder how long before Yamaha files a case against them?

    They did on the ATV knock-offs and won the case too!

    seems to me they probably purchased the leftover white hulls and used aftermarket replacement parts to piece together a ski.

    Don't let your kids get too close to it...it's probably got lead based paint on it.

    If they did this like they did the ATV's, they would somehow get a "real one" and copy off of it.

    The ATV's looked exactly like real Yamaha's. The fake could even use some OEM Yamaha parts. Some.
    Some fit, some didn't. Chinese Q.C. you know....

    Look at some of the Chinese pit bikes, the Honda knock-offs. A lot of Honda parts really fit on them.

    Then there are the Honda "small engine" knock offs. IIRC HF still sells some. Some OEM Honda parts fit on them. Again, QC sucks, and you get what you pay for.

    2 things I like the guages. If the hulls are worth a crap yank the motor and put a 4-tec or even a yamaha motor in it

    Did you also see how the cheeseball tied the ski to the trailer?
