    honestly, don't waste your money , the amount speed you will gain it does not justified the amount of money invested . plus it will be a time bomb ready to go anytime

    Intake grate, sleek seat cover, impeller, ride plate, latex riding gloves, pump shoe plug kit, 6 coats of wax on hull bottom, helmet and Rain-X on the face shield.

    honestly its an 800, you'll be much better off with a 1200 if you are looking for speed. right off the bat it is faster. why spend money to make an 800 fast when you can just get a 1200 from the start.

    +1. Like they always say there is no replacement for displacement. Go find yourself a xl1200 or find a GPR if you can do without the 3rd seat and are dead set on chasing numbers.

    To paraphrase Mikegp... you will spend hundreds of dollars just to get your GPR to run as fast as a stock 1200, and your reliability will go down sharply. It would be best to sell your boat and use the money from the sale along with the $$$$$$$$$$$ you would have spent on the 800 and reinvest it in a 1200 if speed is your thing.

    This is a much better strategy.
