    450
    2000-2002 are carb'd 1200s with power valves
    2003-2004 are EFI 1300s with power valves
    2005-2008 are EFI 1300s w/o power valves

    I prefer power valve EFIs

    Buy the newer ski. You can always put the power valve cylinders on and go gas valves. I think forum member WFO makes them now. Also the 05-08 has a better pump. Low hours is always a plus.

    I just bought an 08 GP1300R and this thing is amazing! I love the feel of the ski and it is very smooth. I cant speak much about the different engines over the years but I have heard the EFI is a better setup. All I know is this ski handles very well and looks great with the blue paint haha. Mine is all stock right now but I am definately happy with this investment. I have ridden older GPRs and I like the new feel much better when it comes to handling and how smoothe it rides.
    I am new to owning GPR's though so I dont have too much experience, just thought I would share how much I like my ski haha.
    Good luck with your search! I hope you find a ski you like for a good price!

    Pv clips and clean out your motor the proper way. That should not happen..........
