    just purchased 2001 gr1200r! what now?

    I am new to jet ski's so i am looking for as much info as possible. This is going to be mostly used for messing around on the lake in fresh water. As far as i know it is bone stock. bought with 54.6 hrs. what should i look to upgrade, replace, look for in order to keep this running at the top of its game. I never worked on ski's or 2-strokes for that matter, but i do all my own work on my motorcycles and 4 wheelers so i can usually figure things out with a little help. Tips, suggestions, anything will be great;y appreciated. It wont be raced or jumped (too much). Thanks for the help

    I have an xl1200, which is similar to your machine. It's been great except for a recent smoke problem which I just posted. I followed Oside Bill's recipe for a carb rebuild to the letter. New jets, correct turn out on the adjusters, new Riva aftermarket flame arrestors, accellerator pump disabled, D-plate and chip, carb kit installed with 42lbs pop off pressure, pre-mixed at 40:1, oil pump removed and block off kit installed. This is supposed to make the machines very reliable (and fast). Hope this helps.
