    Advice needed for First GP1300R mod

    I have a 2003 Yamaha GP1300R.

    Im looking to get a RIVA GPR Top-Loader Grate 2morrow.

    http://www.rivayamaha.com/RivaStore/...oader%20Grates

    will that help with hookup and reduce cavitation ?

    Im also going to do the stepped sponsons mod aswell.

    Im not sure if i should do the Pump Seal install aswell, or should i wait untill i change the impellor ?

    http://www.rivayamaha.com/RivaStore/...0Seal%20K its

    another alternative, is i can get a new riva ride plate for a very good price,
    http://www.rivayamaha.com/RivaStore/...20Ride%20Plate

    do you think i should get the riva ride plate instead of the pump seal kit + top loaded grate
    (ride plate) or (toploader grate + pump seal kit) ?

    Or should i break the bank and get the rideplate + toploader intake grate ?

    Or should i just get the toploader intake grate, and save/get a different mod ?

    The couple of parts you listed,you can purchase on here through Jerry's site.
    Plus if you type in greenhulk at the coupon screen,it gives you 10% off.
    There is a link on the side called "online store"
    Just food for thought.

    I would do the grate and PPK at the same time. Search all of the topics discussing the placement of the pump shoe and get it done right the first time. If you have the money I would go ahead and do a plate too, just to get everything under the ski done. You cant go wrong with the Island plate mod or the Jims plate mod. Just my .02
