    Killer deal......Feel like a theif.

    So, I've been trying to sell my 2001 for a few weeks to buy an 08 that a friend was selling. I had no luck. A buddy fronted up the cash so I didn't miss this deal.......

    2008 GPR $2500! 40hrs stock except a few shitty stickers and a R&D Nozzle. Not toooo bad!

    So I planned on keeping the 1200R but I'm just going to sell it at this point. The 08 is all I'll ever need.


    The only bad thing I found was that he cut the middle two bars out of the intake grate. Scarry. Impeller & clearance is perfect though. Ever heard of anyone doing that?

    It's actually an 06-07, but still a killer deal assuming the compression is good. Yeah, the cut stock grate seems scarier than the stock grate itself. but you can find an R&D 1200 grate cheap enough these days. Good luck with it. I wouldn't mind picking another one up in the future. They are good jumpers.

    Just in case anyone reads this and thinks a cut stock intake grate is a good idea.

    MODIFYING A STOCK GPR INTAKE GRATE IS A VERY BAD IDEA - IT CAUSES THE SKI TO BUCK - IT IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS!

    and yes you got a smokin deal - congrats on the new ski
