    Unhappy GPR-SHO Conversion

    Well I haven’t had this ski for long, but I am having to sell it due to personal reasons which I’m not bringing up on a public forum, other than my financial situation has changed and am going to need the money to put towards my fiancée going back to school and bills. Trust me, I’ve tried to work out a budget without having to sell this thing but it just isn’t going to work out. I love the ski, but have to focus on my priorities. The ski is not completely back together yet, still waiting on the ECU to come in from R&D, but I wanted to post this up to get some interest. Once the ECU is back in and tuned by Duke (should be end of the month – Feb), the buyer can come pick up or I can help with delivery. I have the title in hand.

    I purchased this ski from a guy in Ft. Lauderdale who I know through a friend Jamie (spdracr). The previous owner went 94.0mph on this ski with motec. I got the ski with just the motor setup, intercooler, gauges and an E-tech low boost wheel in it. Everything else pretty much is brand new, and I have dumped a ton of money into it in the past few months since I’ve owned it to get the ski perfect.

    Right now I don’t have the ECU back yet, and once I do, the injectors are going back in. Also, the 155mm DF is still at impros being welded back up, but should get that back in the next few weeks. The ski will be finished and ready for pickup/delivery sometime towards the end of the month (February) once the ECU is in and we have it tuned. This will be a mid 90’s ski without a problem.

    With the stock ECU and the 160mm skat setup it did 89.1mph at ¾ throttle on the limiter when we messed around with the plate angle and trim tabs. With it setup for just handling, it’ll do 88.6mph. I did 86.1mph sitting up on the seat with a full tank of gas, sitting up straight on the seat and the front bucket full of junk on the last k-river ride. With the R&D R3 ECU, and the 155mm liner and DF prop, it should be 95+mph, but will cavitate. I have the 155mm/DF setup for top speed numbers only. Not only is it a 90mph ski, but it holeshots like a monster (with some practice!) with the 160mm setup, handles great, and is dead reliable!! On the past two rides I logged about 160 miles total and didn’t have one hiccup at all, and those who rode the St. Johns and K-River with me can vouch for that. This is a turn key, gas and go, 90+mph ski. Duke has gone over this ski with a fine tooth comb and has spent a ton of time getting this ski perfect.

    It has the normal wear and tear for a 04 hull, some scratches, a little dock rash, but nothing terrible. The rubrails have some rash on them, like normal, and also I’d probably put some hydroturf on it sometime because the stock mats are crappy and don’t offer much grip.

    Asking $10,500.00 with everything (trailer, cover, helmet, extra parts, etc) and willing to help with delivery or shipping internationally.

    WILL NOT PART OUT!! If you want a part on it, I’ll sell you the part for $10,500 and give you a free conversion ski.

    Also, I might consider partial trades plus lots of cash (at least $6k) for a stock or lightly modified GPR or mmmaaayyybbbeeee an RXP…..
