    engine rebuild

    does anyone no how much it would cost normally to have a 2000 gp1200r engine rebuilt? or to have the carburetors rebuilt?

    Carbs will run roughly 400 for a full rebuild
    The motor can be only a few hundred to a few thousand. Depends what's being replaced and what equipment

    Hello Kevin96xx, I just got a 2001 GP1200 R that now is so new .... here was the stuff done & cost to make it so! Carbs were sent to PPG Racing in FL. total rework/rebuild $400, Cylinder head milled to lower squish, Engine was rebuilt by Riva Racing (cases ported & polished) 3 new cylinders @ $1100. And the most beautiful paint job & decals @ about $1600 With odds & ends it takes around $3K ....also R&D Intake Grate & R&D Ride plate plus 13/19 Solas prop ..... best news Now pushes 70+ on GPS !

    If you still have the oil tank, you need to tie off the oil floats to the up most position with zip ties

    If the oil tank is out, bridge the line that's supposed to connect to the oil floater.
    (You could also cut the wire, pull back the plastic, twist them together, use some shrink tubing to seal it off.)

    Overall, I think premix will give the most peace of mind as far as lubrication for your engine. If you properly premix at the correct ratio, you'll always have lubrication in your cylinders (unless of course your carbs crap out). Oil pumps themselves rarely fail because of its simple mechanism. The problem are the oil lines falling off, clogging and brittle lines cracking/leaking. Theres people out there that still use oil pumps without any problems. As long as you keep up with maintenance, even SEADOO's last long lololol

    well since i live in new york would i be able to send everything out? i really dont trust my sell taking everything apart since im young and do not have that much experience with working on the ski. i would love to keep my ski but getting the money to have all the work done is a little hard to get. the guy i bought it from said there was a blockage for the oil tank and said everything was tied off. i think i need my carbs rebuilt and since it is the original motor i think it needs to be rebuilt as well considering it has 120 hours on it. Please stick around to help me, you guys are great.

    you will pay dearly having someone else do the work, and still not know if done properly. your looking at much money and heres my take
    carbs 400-450
    oem carb gasket if stock 35
    pistons, rings, bearings, clips- 500
    base gaskets- 40
    head gasket 50
    pv gaskets 40-id go through and clean pvs
    intake gasket-40
    waveeaters-150
    3bond, marine grease, loctite -40
    thats roughly 1400 if you need nothing done to cases, crank,jugs, or head. a shop will hit you with another 1000+ in labor
    looking at 2400 plus if just doing replacing with piston kits, gaskets, waveeaters, and carbs.

    im anal and would go a touch further and strip cases, add all new seals and gaskets, get crank check out, check reeds, etc then put backtogether. your adding on another 200 if you do that yourself

    look at my build thread and fivesteeda guys, we are far from talent mechanics. get yourself a service manual and use the search button here. basic tools and a torque wrench needed. i have never did anything on my cars, trucks, sleds, mx/sx bikes, etc but found it pretty easy to tear down and put this motor together. take your time, dont SKIMP, buy oem everything(besides pistons) and enjoy

    DO NOT RUSH! TAKE YOUR TIME, READ, READ, AND READ SOME MORE
