    just bought my first ski today, 2001 gp1200r

    have a few questions:

    whats the top speed stock on the digital display?
    seems like i cant go faster than 58 on this thing(84 hours)


    took it out today and had a blast. i figured it would be faster than 58 mph

    Welcome to the forum. Between 62-63 mph stock average. Get a GPS if you want more accurate #'s.

    Dont bother, they are not that accurate although i have seen a few that were close. Water conditions, weather, amount of fuel, rider weight etc..... have an effect on performance. Just ride it and enjoy it.

    Yeah, don't go by the factory digital display, its really not that accurate. Just get a decent gps to check your top speed, other than that, have fun and enjoy it.

    can someone post a pic or al ink of where the cat is on this exhaust. i was told it has a riva stage 1 kit installed, but i think b.s. the plate and grate look stock to me. cant seem to find that exhaust piece that comes with the kit either on the motor. it does seem pretty loud but have nothing to compare it to. i will get pics of the ride plate and grate later to determine if its stock. i dont see any riva stampings on them, nor do i see the free flow exhaust piece. if someone has a pic of that as well, that would be great. will be ordering a repair manual since im new to the jet skis.
