    sold 1300r now looking at vxr, sho, 15f

    just sold my gp1300r, I am looking at replacing with a st15f, vxr,or sho


    If ridden the same( a bit of flat out and a little cruising) would a sho cruise further than my old 1300r on one tank of fuel


    on the sho can you activate low rpm mode whilst ski is running

    I'm leaning towards a SHO at the mo

    is there anything to look out for when buying a used SHO?

    Can't compare a supercharged ski fuel consumption as major factor is rider and riding style. You can cruise with the SHO, but where's the fun with that? For its 4 cylinder 1800cc size and for being supercharged, it's decent on gas. Also taking 87 octane helps for refueling on the water. I would get a FZR or FZS as closer to a GP1300r in performance.

    As far as buying a used SHO, ride it and make sure to check full rpm and top speed from the supercharger properly working. Also check that the electric bilge pump works. The oil filter tends to rust at the base and can possibly leak.

    for riding long distances with passengers offshore get the sho,for solo riding short distances offshore get the fzr,and for mostly flat lakes get the vxr
