2004 GP1300R - needs work
The ski is a 2004 with ~125 hours.
SOLD! Thanks to all who showed interest.
The stinger mount4 on the cylinder is in need of repair. The bolt hole needs to be welded, redrilled, and tapped - buying a new cylinder or running a smaller stinger pipe is the other solution. This is the problem that has kept the ski out of commission for almost 6 years. The only mods that will come on the ski are a Riva D-Plate and Jetworks plumbing [need new $2 rubber detent in the JW valve]. A competent mechanic should be able to get it on the water with minimal expense.
I am finally trying to make room for a Superjet, so this one needs to go. It does not come with a trailer and it is located in Lake Mary, FL - just 20 minutes North East4 of Orlando.
I can get better and more specific photos upon request.
Picture of the damage
Thanks for looking.

you have a single trailer available to go with the ski?

No Rich, I do not. If I did, it would already be on its way to Alabama

Are there any runability issues whatsoever with this ski other than the broken bolt? When was the last time the engine was run? What is the compression in each cylinder? Do you have the oem stock exhaust?

Yes, I have all of the OEM parts, including new exhaust mount brackets and studs.
The was last run 6 years ago and it ran fine. Compression was tested at ~110 a week ago, BUT keep in mind that the gas is likely mush, the rings were relatively dry [only had 2 oz oil to drip between the 3 cylinders], and I was using a 20 yr old SnapOn gauge. I believe that the important thing is that they are all even and that they should regain compression with a bit of run time.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
