    Handling on GP1300R

    See a lot of talk on here about going fast, but what would be good set up's for handling and still going somewhat fast. Have an 08 GP1300, just have r&d rideplate, d- plate, r&d VTS trim system for right now. I have tunnel reinforcement and pump shoe on the way. Just was looking to get ideas on making the ski handle better, but still have good speed. I do a lot of wave jumping, and me and some buddies like to race around buoy's.

    Do a quick search.

    Basically you drill or dremil out the middle hole on each sponson. Then you can put the front bolt in the lower hole and the rear bolt in the higher hole.

    Works great and it a quick and free mod.
