    Question 06 GP1300R Questions

    I am looking into picking up a GP. Has a little under 200 hours on it. All original motor.
    My questions are:
    How reliable are they with that many hours?
    What is it worth in good cosmetic condition with a trailer?
    I am new to the 2 stroke skis...any advice would be appreciated!

    with 200 hours on it, its time to rebuild generally and not just the top end but crank as well however i have heard of ppl getting much longer out of the motors, just not many ppl.

    best way to check is to check its compression, they should all be within 5psi of each other and over 110psi imho.

    not sure on prices as i live somewhere where they sell for stupid amounts.

    hope this helps.

    is this as a second ski...We see you have an FZS in your avatar....do you work on your own ski....are you up to the challenge of an eventual rebuild...then great, lots aftermarket parts and "how to" info...but if this is going to be your primary ski and you do alot of long riding, and see your near the great lakes with not always calm waters...you might want to stay with the FZS...besides the gas/oil cost on the GPR is alot more, especially if you modify for speed...btw with that many hrs , no more than $4000

    It is a 2006 GP1300R. I sold my FZS....this would be my primary ski. I like the concept of a 4 stroke better. But I want something with decent speed. I do have a 06 fxho I saw for sale for a good price and lower hours then the GP.
    I do work on my own stuff. I was an auto tech for many years. I don't want to spend a half of summer rebuilding a motor when my summer is only about 4 months long max...

    umm

    that would put me at a investment of about 7k into the ski...not worth it to me. But thanks for the offer....If I bought it with a junk motor cheap it def would of been a possibility. I havent even picked it up yet, I am still weighing all my options at this point...
