    Done with college now have some money for the gp1200r :)

    Ok i have a 2001 gp1200r with a d-plate, and free flow (took out the silencer) exhaust. Im putting an order together. mainly run in the bay salt water, occasionally go in the ocean but looking for top speed and hole shot over handling.

    1. Solas concord 14/20 impeller
    2. pump seal kit
    3. carbon tech reeds
    4. R&D Intake Grate
    5. a new wear ring
    6. riva pump cone

    i was also thinking about the Island hole shot kit but still debating.

    is the 14/20 the best pitch to run for my setup? what about a solas setback impeller?

    which intake grate the r&d dual bar or single aquavein bar.

    any specific wear ring?

    if anyone has any imput on what else to get best bang for the buck without messing with the cylinder heads please chime in i would appreciate it.

    All of the info is here, you just need to search through it. Most won't reply if you're asking something thats been covered a dozen times...

    1. don't waste your time with the pump cone. It doesn't do anything. 2. you won't turn a 14/20 impeller with the mods you're listing. Call Island Racing and have them pitch a 14/20 back to what they think will work for your mods, or run a deptiched Nujet 6.5 if you want more top speed with a lesser hole shot.
    3. R&D or Riva 800 grate, with one of their ride plates...
    4. Never tried the carbon tech reeds on a 66V...I'd use the proven VF3 setup
    5. Either a Skat wear ring setup, or the plastic one from Island Racing. The stock one is junk at best.
    6. Get a good tach setup...Uplevel Tiny tach or a PET 2100 (best)
    7. Spend some time reading this forum...there is a ton of information, with everything you ever wanted to know about GPR performance.

    He has no "power" mods, such as a higher compression head, CDI (more timing), good reeds, etc. to give the motor more grunt to spin it. Like Woody said, the 13/19 is the best choice for now, but it will hold you back later on...that's why i like the depitched 14/20 or nujet.

    Yeah putting a 14/20 on basically a stock 1200 will make it a slug. Not fun to ride at all.
    Actually you might be better off sticking with the stock prop at this point. You can't go wrong with an aftermarket rideplate either. Best money spent for the mph you gain.


    I would buy this intake grate if you want holeshot and hook up-

    The Solas 13/19 is about the best 'all around' prop out there for a lightly moddified GPR or stock. Great bottom/mid/top (for the size of the wheel).
    Yeah, you can try stuffing a 14/20 in there but its really too much for a stock motor. NOW, some of the 14/20 'out of the box' are 13/19-13.5/19.5 etc.... In your budget, get your self a tach.
