    Anyone ever done a listing of changes to models from year to year?

    Was curious if anyone has authored a "compendium" highlighting the changes in GP's & XL's from year to year. Looking mainly for new hulls, impeller changes, different sponsons and the like. I could trudge through parts listings and come up with answers in about 10 hours but was hoping some of you have this info memorized and could share it in a matter of minutes.
    Thanks.

    Good start. Was hoping for more than the "overview". If I were looking at an '01 GP1200R vs. an '04 what are the differences? Did they modify the hull slightly, change nozzle angle or impeller, or even bulk up a fragile hood hinge? Would be nice to read what changes were made to see if that justifies the extra money for one ski over another (hours being equal).
    Thanks again.

    GPR

    Well an 01 is a 1200 carb, an 04 is a 1300 fuel injection...so just due to those two things, there are quite a few differences in parts. The hull design for all GPRs is the same, with slight changes made to the thickness from 03+. Nozzle angles are all 5* on them, but the diameter changed in '05, when they got the updated HO pump. Better seat design on 03+, extended pump on 03+, HO pump on 05+. Heavier duty ride plate and pump shoe mounts were used in either 03 or 05+...I forget. These are the major things.
