Yamaha gp1200 wont accelerate?
I've had a yamaha gp1200 for a few years now and this season it wont accelerate past 18mph. The rpms wont pass like 3k either. Engine looks good(took the head off inspected the pistons) and holds compression. I don't know much about PWC but i think its a carb issue(clogged screen?). We had similar issues in the past and had them rebuilt by a marina for a crazy price.
I have a few questions about the shopping list I put together..
Yamaha D Plate Cat Remove Chip Xl Gp Xlt 1200 R $69.95
GP1200R/XLL/XLT FILTER KIT,66V $239.95
Carburetor, 44mm Mikuni Super BN R-Type - Three $599.85
OIL PUMP BLOCKOFF, 8/11/1200 $14.95
FUEL FILTER, OE SPEC, 1/4"" $15.95
Spark Plug, NGK three $14.85
My plan is to convert into a oil mix setup, get rid of the cat, change plugs and fuel filter, add flame arrestors, and put three new carbs in.
Are the Hi-Performance Mikuni 44mm Super BN R-Type Carburetor's ready to install? Are they complete for $199 ea?
"R-Type" models are race equipped, choke body is removed, jetting and pop-off pressure is set for competition use."
Does this mean I can install them as is with the mods I plan to install? Am I better off rebuilding the stock ones?
Thanks in advance.

The carbs are not the correct ones for this ski. You are better off finding a used OEM set, that has been rejetted for the filters you want to add.
read this regarding the carbs and upgrading to aftermarket Flame Arrestors (filters) http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=70129
If you are interested contact me regarding the carbs I have some and would also like to know what is wrong with yours.
