    New guy here, just saying hey

    Hey everyone,
    I'm really new to the world of pwc's and just really got into them. I picked these up today and figured i had better join up so i can ask questions, and this looks like a great place to do so. I picked up a 2003 Yamaha XLT 1200 and a 2000 Yamaha GP1200R with a riva stage 2 kit. Havent gotten a chance to get them out on the water yet but I will this weekend. So here are a few pics. And thanks ahead of time!

    Howdy and welcome. Looks like Two of your head bolts is not stainless.

    Yea i was wondering what was up with that when i was checking these things out. But i got a KILLER deal on these two so i couldnt pass them up. Sucks that we only get 7 months of good weather in WV

    Nice looking skis.

    If you can - check compression on them before you run them. Also check the torque on the 1200's head. Chances are it's been take off a number of times and original bolts were stretching/breaking that's why they were replaced. Best bet would be to replace and properly torque all the head bolts.

    hope the compression is good buddy. Why did you buy them without testing them on the water?

    They're from a good friend of mine that just had them out the weekend before.
