    Info Needed!!

    OK, I have a 99 GP1200. Its all stock except for a Riva Primer Kit. I hate the porpoising, so I want to eliminate that. What parts can you guys suggest I use on this? I want it to hook up better and ride smoother. I plan on buying a ride plate and intake grate for sure. Other mods will include HydroTurf, Drop nozzle kit, and maybe trim tabs if they will help. So what can you guys recommend me to use? I'm not sure which brand of parts is better than others, so if you know what would help me, please let me know. Thanks.

    Brian you want to find a R&D rideplate if you can and also a good great R&D or ProTec grate. what impeller are you running still stock? Trim tabs will help also. There is also a great link to hull truing which is a major improvement. Welcome and you are in the right place for help.

    Brian here is a great post by Pistonwash on hull truing it seems like a lot of work but the payout is worth it.

    Thanks osidebill. I forgot to mention, that I ride in mostly choppy to very choppy waters. Glassy surfaces are very rare. I'm sure this makes a difference in ride plate and grate selections.

    Also wanted to mention that I'd like to add a TDR waterbox. I know everyone says that they are annoying, but I like my toys loud, and where I ride, there are so many LOUD speed boats, no one will really care. Is there any cons I should know about these? I would really like to find a good used one, so as to save money for other mods.

    I'll trade you the components for a drop nozzle for you QSTS grip and cables if you want.

    What kind of condition are the components in? Any pics? Why do you want to go back to the stock setup?

    I'll get some pics. I prefer the QSTS. I actually have never ridden this ski, but I know that I am not going to be running bouy's.

    Sounds good. You can send them to [email protected] . Is it a RIVA brand? Is the cable in good shape?

    Brian I can tell you from experience that the only real gain From the TDR is the noise no noticable performance gains from the single pipe.
    Mine did sound radical
