Where Best to Spend my Money
I have a 97 GP1200, 2000 XLT 1200 and a 2002 XLT 1200. I did do my research on here but didnt find what I was looking for. What I am wanting to know is on which ski should I spend performance money on or which one will give me the best bang for my speed buck.
Thanks in advance for the help.

All 3 are pretty limited to their hull design unless you want to do a lot of wrenching and spend lots of money on triple pipes/porting. If you really want to start chasing speed sell 2 of them and go buy a GPR. Not trying to sound mean it's just been done on here and it's not really worth it unless you absolutely have to have a really fast XLT or GP.
That's not to say that some very simple mods wount wake them up a lot. If you let people know on here where you ride, how much speed you want and what you budget is you will get a lot more answers. Also troll the classifieds for parts you can get some really great deals on both new and used parts.

Out of those three skis, the GP will be the sportiest one. The XLTs are great skis as well for 2up/3up riding, pulling tubes, and great cruisers in moderately rougher water.
If you're looking to go fast (ie top speed), then the GP1200 will go about 70-71mph tops when its built and setup for all out speed. Low to mid 60s mph is easier to obtain.
I don't know what the "all out top speed" of an XLT is, but I think low to mid 60s should also be fairly easy to get to.
The GPR hull is just way better for going really fast...so if thats what you're after, go find and mod a GPR
