    Annual maintenance/servicing on my gp1300r

    Hey , it's nearly time to pull my 1300R out the garage for start if the season , I normally get it serviced every year before it goes out on the water (fresh water) , this costs me £170 per year . The question I'm asking is does my gp1300r need a full service every year/season ? Bearing in mind I only do around 10 hrs per season .
    And what is involved in servicing a gp1300r ?
    i am good mechanically minded so if its a case of a few spark plugs ect I don't see why I should keep paying £170 from my local pwc specialist to carry this out .

    ski is a 2004 gp1300r waverunner - 94 hrs

    Thanks for help

    all they do is install new spark plugs, do a compression test, make sure everythings functioning properly and run some fresh gas through it for a min and tell you your ready in which you can actually do yourself in which it saves a lot of money

    +2 save the money and do it yourself. Really simple to do a compression test and install new plugs

    Check the compression like others said. You might want to consider a new top end in the future just to be safe, but if your compression numbers are still high and even I wouldn't sweat it. Just something to keep an eye on.

    So what's good compression? At the beginning of last season mine was at 123psi in each cylinder but by the end of the season i was reading 110-112psi. What's goin on there? Time for a rebuild? Really didn't want to yet

    Different gauges will read different results so really as long as all 3 are the same or close then you should be good.

    The intermediate housing also needs a few pumps of grease (Yamaha Marine).

    Does not hurt to use some lube on all your cables too.

    Good time to check for intake grate cracks.
