    Common GPR problem?

    I just bought a 2000 GP1200r, I was told there is a common problem with the earlier gpr's but it can be remedied easy, is there a thread about this, or a page or can someone let me know more about it so i don't take it out on the water before i take care of it, thank you.

    I have never personally herd of a problem with GPR hulls taking on water. Most common water leaks are from any hoses inside or your drive shaft hose which over time (IDK havn't replaced mine) can eventually get a hole because apparently under hard acceleration it collapses around the drive shaft.

    The real problems to worry about is getting PV clips, D-plate, and making sure your oil lines are securely in place or switch to premix.

    If you do any modding consider these
    Pump Tunnel Reinforcement
    Aftermarket Intake Grate

    These are must do items for safety

    Here is some good reading for you....

    thanks for the reply guys. What i heard was mostly to do with the fact its a powervalve engine, so i am guessing something to do with them. Most likely what the pv clips prevent, ill look into it on the forum. thank you[COLOR="Silver"]
