    Question Buying advice, Yamaha GP1200 year 1999

    I have an option to buy a used Yamaha. Any advice on what to look for would be greatly appreciated. Also which book value reference is better? Nada or Kelly blue book? I'm very new and looking to limit my mistakes.

    Well if they would let you I would take these spark plugs out and use a flashlight to inspect the heads for anything other than carbon deposits. I also like to check the idle. Eye everything

    The owner said I can do anything to review the pwc. Thanks for you input. Anything else would be great.
