    99 yamaha gp 1200 (52hrs)

    Hey everyone...Found ski I wanted to know a little about. It is a 99 yamaha gp 1200 and looks awesome. My question is this, it has 52hrs on it and they guy says its mech. good shape. Are these good ski;s? I had a 2007 GP1300R which was awesome, just dont know much about the 99 models. They are asking $3200.00 for it. What do you think.Click image for larger version.

    Nice GP1200!! 99 is my favorite year for those. With those hours, I'd pay between 2500 and 3000 for it, so the price isn't too far off. These skis are fun and fast (not as fast as the GPRs of course). Mechanically simple to work on. Lots of upgrade/performance parts out there.

    A stocker will run 57-59mph, and it will get there quickly. It is a 65U engine which is bullet proof if you treat it half way decent. They are a much wetter ride and harder on your forearms than the GPR. The GPR slices through the water while the GP plows through it.

    As good as they are, they are no where near the craft the GPR is. It's worth 2500 if it is in good shape.
