    1999 Yamaha GP1200R

    I am looking at a GP1200R. It looks to be in great conditon. It seems to have plenty of power to tow tubes, and have some fun. Is there anything I should know about this model? I take really good care of my boats, and do all the proper maintenence. I'm only planning on using it for a summer, then upgrading. The guy is asking 1600$ without trailer. It comes with the original cover. I have everything else I will need. Should I pull the trigger or hold out for a better price? Better ski at the same price? It seems to be a solid deal.

    **Also it has an upgraded handlebars with finger throttle and has 70HRS on it**

    seems like a good deal. I would just say if you plan on towing a tube with it you should probably look into your local boating regulations. Locally here you need a 3 seater PWC in order to pull a skier/tuber/wakeboarder etc. one seat for the drive, one for the spotter, and one for the person being towed

    DO compression check, low hours for a 14 yr old ski, may want to budget getting carbs gone through and check all fuel /oil lines at same time before you start riding it.

    I'm only on a lake with hardly anyone around. It's a fairly big lake, but not much boating traffic here in NS. But the regulation is 3. But it's going to be rare that I do because I have an 07' Sea Ray 185 Sport.

    Also this engine is oil injected correct? Would I be better off with this or a Sea Doo SPI for 1,400$ With Trailer?

    Something is wrong here the gpr 1200 powervalve motor did not come out till 2000 year model. The 1999 was a gp1200 non power valve engine, what are the last two numbers in the hull serial number. These last two digits are the year. Tommy Jordan

    I know it's not a 2000, because it's not the style hull. It could be just a GP1200. I can post a picture if anyone wants to see and can give me more background info. I have the seller sending more pictures tomorrow.

    There is alot of differance in a 1999 vs 2000 the hull and motor were total re designed in 2000 . How ever the older gp's were good skis for there time 1997-1999. Bigest thing about the older ski was the oil injector lines need to be re tied at every conection from the pump to the carb air intake for safety. Tommy Jordan
