    New here, picking up a 2006 gp1300r tomorrow.

    Hi,

    I am picking up a 2006 gp1300r tomorrow with about 57 hours on it. This is my first ski or boat of any kind. From the research I have done, I understand this is a pretty good platform. Anything I need to look for before I hand over the money? The ski is stock, but hopefully not for long once I learn what mods I need to do.

    Thanks.

    Welcome to the Hulk.
    Ride it if you can. The '06 w/57hrs should need nothing.
    Bring a flashlight and look up the pump for prop/pump damage.

    Gas, Oil and GO.

    Unfortunately I will not be able to ride it. However, he is going to hook up a hose for me and start it. I know that is not as good as riding, but it is better than nothing I suppose..

    No water nearby . I am driving a ways to get it. Ski came from this person's vacation house in another state.

    Because we dont all live in Miami and its still freezing outside in most of the country . But check the compression no matter what. I think somewhere around 130 per cylinder, just be sure they are all within +- 5psi of each other. Sounds like you're getting a good ski.
