    Introduction, New GPR Owner

    Hey, my name is Sam, just thought I'd introduce myself and my recently purchased gpr. Big thanks to everyone who posts on here! There is tons and tons of great information to be found on greenhulk! It wasn't until reading on here for a while that I decided the gpr was what I wanted. I just purchased the ski a week and a half ago off of craigslist just outside of charlotte, NC. It is a 2000 gp1200r with 88 hrs of all freshwater use on it. The guy I bought it from was the original owner and had all the documentation to prove it. Here are a few pics:










    I ran a compression test before purchasing which yielded about 2.5% max difference between the three cylinders which averaged about 116psi. Gave it a good look over, threw in some new spark plugs and took it out for her maiden voyage this past saturday. The ski ran great, no starting issues and not a hiccup, ran great and pulled hard. I was pretty impressed as this is my first PWC.

    Right now plans are to go premix, install waveeater clips, and remove the cat installing a d-plate. I can already tell this stuff is addicting...

    The 2000 GPR is the best looking one ever made. You're going to love it.

    Yea, I think the 2000 is the best looking year also. I moved up from a 97 GP1200, What a difference!! With not many mods and paying great attention to detail setting up the hull, I have my ski flying!! Your going to love your GPR also.

    Thanks everyone for all the compliments on the ski and warm welcome to the hulk! I really like the way the 2000's look too.

    tmg97gp- your ski looks really clean, I like it, what mods/setup are you currently running to get it over the 70mph mark?

    noticing any speed loss with the free flow? i'd think you could use a little backpressure on a mostly stock 1200...
