    Question Prop question? YD-SC-XI on a stock gp1200?

    Hi all, hope every one is well?

    i sucked up some rocks the other day and now my Solas concord 13/19 prop is all bent and chipped and is cavitating now.

    question is.. Iv found someone selling a brand new Solas YD-SC-XI 14.5/20.5 for only $50au rite near me

    Can any one tell me how it will go on my gp1200?

    The motor is basily stock, just .5 over pistons and a shaved head. Iv got worx sponsons and grate and a 97 long ride plate. I was getting 113kph as my fastest ever on glass water.. And 105kph all the time. I'm not 100% on rpms unfortunately, but I know it's extremely close to redline.

    just want to know that I'm not going to kill my motor or half my top speed with this new prop? Any info is good please..

    Thanks all, mark.

    Thats too much prop for a stock GP1200. It'll slow you way down. The YD-SC-XO (14.5/17.5) is the most popular prop for this machine

    thanks for that. Iv found a place that will re pitch it for me. Ill also get the one on my ski fixed at the same time. He said aprox $60au a prop. And I got the 14.5/20.5 for $50au, so works out pretty good!! Now iv just got to work out the BEST bend for it...?

    Ill probably get it bent to 13/18.5? As the solas concord 13/19 I have now worked real well. Would 12.5/19 give me faster take off?

    also, any one know the diff between the Solas concord and the Solas x-prop? Is it just the bend?

    The blade design on a X prop has the straight leading edge and the concord has a curved edge. There's probably more differences, I'm not sure exactly what.

    I've still got my stock prop in the shed, do you think it would be any good if I got it bent to a 13/19 like the stuffed one in my ski? Or are the blade designs way different and it would be crap?

    If that XI is still for sale, maybe you get it and repitch it to the XO specs or the 13/19 like your Concord. Doesn't really answer your question...just a thought
