    Curious guys I am currently riding a 98 gsx ltd and looking at a 04 xp 951di but will convert to carb. Curious what you guys like better about the xp ?

    Hows the ride with the seat on a shock ? Noticable difference in ride?
    Hows the hull handle?

    a totally different ride and handling, lean in cornering, better in chop and smooth on the seat also, a breeze to work on and rebuild

    I'd get a spark before one of these.

    I agree with Winterstick, i have owned both and they are totally different rides. The GSX weight balance is better, but it has a very flat bottom, so it is a better ride in slow speed manouvering and glass water. The XPL is nose-heavy and is skitterish and unstable at slow speeds, but the vee hull slices through chop and carves turns at high speeds. ( carves so sharp you can get your ass thrown off if you arent hanging on good). The GSX is horrible in chop, spends more time out of the water than hooked up.
