    FNG Here!! Just bought an 07 GP1300R

    Hello everyone! Just like any new guy Im surre Ill have a million questions about my new toy, but Ill try and keep it to a minimum. Just bought an 07 GP1300R with 56 hours on it. It looks brand new and fully stock under the seat. I took it out yesterday for the first time and it ran great, its got crazy power. I just wanna mod it to ride good and avoid breakdowns. Any GPR owners out the that could give me some input on what mods to go with? I would like to keep the oil tank and not switch to premix, any thoughts on that would be greatly appreciated. First thing I need is a service manual... Thnaks in advance!!

    Keep an eye on the oil lines, just to be safe. I got my shop manual off ebay, but it's on a disc and that kind of sucks. How much are you willing to put into mods? Are you looking to hit a certain speed?

    Ive heard the oil lines is what causes the problem so will do, thanks. As far as $$ for mods, anything to keep the ski running right for the longest time possible. If speed comes with it, then even better!

    The oil lines was more for the 1200r as they are routed and mounted differently on the 1300. You would need:

    Intake Grate
    D-plate and temp chip
    Ride plate

    Thanks Leejax01. I just spoke to a buddy of mine that has a GP800R and he does premix. I was considering switching so I have one less thing to worry about...

    Well I have to tell you ... I have an 08 GP1300, still has oil injection system & it works fine. No one has ever said they had a pump failure or even a failed/popped line. But for some reason because of the slim chance an injection pump may fail or an oil line may pop off. yes there was a time Yamahas had issues concerning the oil lines running to the #3 cyl and an oil lines did tend to pull tight & pop off ... causing engine damage no doubt. But form about 05 on I have not been able to find one documented case where this in fact has happened. But most will tell you they did it as a precausion .. thus just will never know. it is like having your tonsils removed ... because it is the thing to do. yet anyone I know who did manage to keep his tonsils has never had an issue ... go figure. If it gives you some peace of mind go for it. ... Good luck

    Get the WaveEater kit for it if you want to prevent a expensive breakdown.
