    Unhappy first mods for a GP1200?

    Bought a low hour 98 GP1200... I don't know much about available upgrades. What are some easy/cheap must have upgrades?

    Well before some one chimes in and bites you... LOL
    You should do a search for this. It has been discussed tons.

    Mods do depend on what you want to do... First piece of real advice I can give, unless your pre-mixing you oil/gas - double clamp all your oil lines, both ends.

    If you have an early 98 hull with plastic trim tabs, then you should look into replacing those with aluminum ones. After that, ride plate, intake grate, impeller, and sponsons are good upgrades without touching the motor.

    hold off BUYING anything until you deside these five Questions first..

    1. What it is you want that Gp to do for you? (ride, single, double or pull a toy thru the water?)

    2. Are you looking for speed, quickness or power? (there are trade offs needing to be addressed)

    3. What conditions do generally you ride in? (chop,glass or mix)

    4. In what condition is your ski? (modifications it already has, hours and compression)

    4. Lastly , what $$'s are you willing to invest?.. (only asking this to get you best bang for the buck)

    Tell us these answers and we can help you better !!!

    there are specific purchases for each use.. the GP BIBLE as I call it, by PISTONWASH will help you with modifications and steps that are proven to work.. follow it,ask questions.. tell us what you are looking to do with the ski and we can help point you in the right direction with out spending unneeded $$'s

    The GHPF O/S 'stickys' are a great place to gain insight on particularly the GP ,RAIDER and BLASTER's (all three are represented) . they follow just about the cutting edge known on those three skis today..
