    Stock GP/GPR Speeds

    Can someone give me a quick rundown on the stock gp/gpr speeds from 97 up?
    Any clear cut years to stay away from? Seems like a big body style change from 99-00...Is this considerably significant?
    I know it a kind of vague set of questions but I'll take all the info I can get.
    I'm thinking of picking one up and giving the wife the RX.....
    Thanks
    Doug

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I "think" (.est) +/- 1 mph

    Stock 2000-2002 GP1200R runs about 62-63 mph stock

    Stock 2003-2006 GP1300R runs about 64-66 mph stock

    Pistonwash, 97GPsleeper, BULLRAIDER or Darthraider can chime in on the stock GP speeds.

    You replied quicker than I could edit to finish my questions! I had to make sure the kids were brushing their teeth for bed!
    Thanks

    Don't forget if the 97 had bad trim tabs you could be around 54-55 they notorious for bad trim tabs. Other than that 97gpsleeper is right on the money.

    That goes without saying. I witnessed first hand what can happen when your trim tabs are dragging. I got caught and passed by a 97 SPX that I jerked out of the hole by several lengths a few days before my tabs broke off. The next day I was riding along and the ski leaned over to the right hard and started porpoising. I went back to the boat ramp and saw one had broke off and the other was on its way. I called Riva and they were aware of the problem and they were working on a replacement. I got my 97 in May of 97 brand new, the tabs broke off in June. It was September before Riva had tabs made ready to distribute. I even bought the stock junkers in the mean time, siliconed the hell out of them, and put them on before the Riva's were ready to ship. This pair also broke off before the Riva's arrived. I met the guy on the SPX later that summer, before I had the Riva billet tabs and after the second pair broke off. I knew it was faster with no tabs than it was with dragging tabs. I told him I wanted to run again and explained to him the trim tab issue. I said if I did not beat him this time, his ass would be handed to him when I got the Riva tabs. He had ran his mouth about beating me to several people I knew, I wanted revenge. I was able to keep it from porpoising and I won. I had to learn to ride it most of the summer without trim tabs, hence the win.
