'00 GP1200R fuel selector knob very tight...
Since I bought this machine a couple months ago the red fuel selector knob has been super tough to turn. I've really gotta twist hard to get tit to move, especially from off or reserve to on. I took the knob off hoping it was a simple fix, but no luck there. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I bought a 2000 GP1200R that sat in storage for 7 years and was pretty much cherry. If you're interested in buying the one I have before it hits ebay, just shoot me a PM. Basically pay for shipping and surprise me with a few bucks if you want and I'm good. I have the complete assembly from the knob, the retaining nut on the base to secure it to the hull and comlpete valve assembly.

its a common problem... selector switch either locks up, or starts leaking
I have a few good ones too

Just FYI ,I have taken them apart and rebuilt them.To rebuild them is not the best way to deal with it being hard to turn but ,you can do it.When rebuilding you have to make sure everything seals up good or you will have trouble starting,running ect.My advise is to just buy another one they are that much money .

how about bypassing it? would it just be as simple as t'ing it off? or would i have to take off the top of the tank and extend the main line?

I have your same GPR1200. I really have not messed with my reserve knob but I heard it was time comsuming to fix. Everything needs to be exact or the ski will not turn on or run as good.

I'm suprised to hear that, I thought it would be a pull and replace kinda deal?
I'm having a primer installed over the winter, he can replace it then.
