    First Ski...

    Hi All,

    I recently purchased a 2003 GP1300R and have some questions regarding it.

    What oil do you recommend?
    Are you able to just repaint (spray) the grab bar and gunwale?
    I am having a hard time clearing the left front drain....believe a wasp got up there and made a nest. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the help!

    Amsoil dominator or interceptor
    Heat up grab bar to bring back color

    If you are running the cat con, best to use the Yamaha oil for that... Yamalube 2W I believe. If D-plate, matter of preference and many good brands out like Klotz, Amsoil etc. Best way to clear the side pisser is to run the engine on trailer while in water and take a pointy object and insert into the clogged outlet. Keep on until the water pressure clears it out. Can do on a hose, but get better water pressure out of the submerged jet pump.

    Can you elaborate on that?? I have a 2003 GP800R with a 'greying' grab bar.. will heating it up bring it back to black? Heat gun? How hot?

    Yes take a heat gun to it and it will bring the color back out. Just be careful not to burn/melt it

    ^^^^^ that works for about half a day. If you don't want to try the heat gun, paint it or have it hydro dipped
