    2001 GP800R questions

    I'd like to start off saying hi as I'm new to actively using the forum (been lurking for about 2 years now). Have a 2001 GP800R that I purchased in '02 as a leftover model, and at this time is completely stock. I am looking for input as to what all I should consider doing for the continued longevity of the motor. Last compression test (late May) was showing about 117/120 psi on both cylinders (I've gathered that this is a bit low), never had the top end rebuilt. Planning on ordering a set of the Wave Eater clips and coupler next week, but beyond that I'm a bit in the dark. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for the input. Curious as to why you don't recommend the coupler given what the info available from Wave Eater about it.

    I had read on here that the wave eater coupler is made of a harder material that wears out the shaft instead of the coupler. From what I read, that is a negative and the OEM coupler usually does not create a problem.
