Which year is best for the GSX Limited?
Is the engine on the 1999 GSX Limited better than the earlier years? If so what exactly are the differences in the engines? Thanks!

I think the 99 gsxl is the best looking one and i think it has all the updates to help keep the water out of the engine. I wouldn't buy any other ones. The 97 1/2 gsxl had the POS 947 engine in it and the 98-99 came with the 951. I don't know all the tech chit with the 951 since im a 96xp kinda guy.

Had my 98 GSXL since Feb 98 but it's the 97.5 model with the white motor with the white pipe and man that thing can run. It's been running strong for 12 years and never had the head off. The white motor has more port timing is what I heard, don't know if that's good or bad but they can still put on a good show.

I don't think the 97 1/2 and 98 gsxl came with the diaper that's around the intake manifold.

I have had 2 98's one 99. 99 was better and not because it was newer. It was a hair faster and the ignition was better. 97.5 was a POS im sure some people can keep them together but they were so bad Seadoo/Rotax did a retool and came out with a new engine 6 months later. They dont do that because they run to fast or last to long. They also changed the pump Too. Bigger Impeller Diam
