    seadoo xp vs gp1200r

    How do these two skis match up? I was really hoping to be able to get into the new 4 strokes but ski fund isnt that big yet, so it looks like its a carbed two stroke for now.

    The only thing that junk yamaha has over the xp is topend... The xp will take the yami in handleing and holeshot allllll day long ... I speak from head to head comparison with my friends 1200

    Stock for Stock the XP will smash the gp1200r on holeshot , the GPR will out handle and have more top end then the XP ...
    both ski's are very good i guess it comes down to personal preference ..

    Gp's only shine with seadoo motors. I used to have a seadoo xp and it was nasty, not even comparable to my buddies 1200R. I loved that lil' carving booger! I liked the 2 stroke sound with a thru-hull, just chattering across the water!
    Good luck with your choice but If I was you and trying to be on a 4-tech one day.....go with a nice gp1200r and when you get into some more money, buy an RXP/RXP-x motor and do a conversion ski. (:

    I've owned both and love my XPLs, but GPR for everything but not cheap to rebuild

    I would take a 951 over a yamaha 1200. I have a GP1200 that the engine failed catastrophically, and a GTX limited that runs perfect.

    I'd personally go with the carbed XP/XP-L with the 951 motor (1998-1999 XP-Limited, 2000-2002 XP), but it really depends on what you will be using the ski for. Handling, holeshot, and fun factor all go to the XP/XP-L as long as you are riding by yourself. If you will ride with a passenger on a regular basis I would go with the GPR.
