Motorwise, are XLT1200's and GP1200R's identical?
Picked up a 250 hr '01 GP1200R the other day for $600 with 35 psi comp in rear cylinder (oil line came off). This one is still together so it greatly helps me out on the 01' XLT1200 which I purchased already torn down. Was wondering if the motors are exactly the same on the two skis. I'm thinking maybe exhaust is a bit different due to hull length (and it's silver on the XLT vs black on GPR, maybe making them easily identifiable at the factory because the motor is different?).

+1 to Yellow.... what he said about the cables being different, but it's the same motor all the way until you reach the waterbox.

You get higher compression by milling a 66V head... don't believe me then ask Jim!
