    Yamaha XLT 1200 Rebuild

    FIRST BUILD

    bought a JUNK xlt 1200 for $300 for parts for my gp 800 r and decided to try and rebuild it


    -crankshaft was seized
    -one piston and cylinder were damaged
    -hull was in terrible condition
    -about 50% of the parts were missing
    -waverunner was layed up for years
    -had been ran onto coral
    -and so on and so forth lol

    actually got it rebuilt, but only decided to take pictures after......

    SO.. this is more about body work, painting the hull and continuing the project





    after fiberglassing the front of the (black marks were from the rubber on trailer)

    notice the XL seats
