    Good deal? 2003 GP1300r

    I found one for sale extremely local. From the pictures it looks to be alright. The description says low compression on the rear. Being efi I'm thinking it probably lost an oil line. Includes a like-new trailer for $1400 total. I /think/ this ski might be worth about $4000 during peak season if fixed. Should I look at and jump on it? Will the rear likely have a bad crank or could it just need a top-end?

    I would take the gamble....here in Europe that's an awesome deal.
    My friend just sold his 2006 gpr for $2000 with a broken crank crankcase and cylinder,..

    I think you made a good deal. This skis are very reliable. I just bought another 03 this morning for good deal with trailer. Has 82 hours and checks out good. Still haven't had a chance to ride it but worth the gamble. Found it on local Craigslist and couldn't resist. Owner always used yamalube and changed plugs. Has new battery and fires right up. I love theses little skis.

    i paid $2900 for my good condition 03 a couple years ago.

    i'd take the gamble and go for it, i mean look how lucky you got with that super jet haha. lots of possibilities on what the cause of the low compression could be. really take a good look at the ski before you go through with the sale

    Well; the guy never responded when asked how many hours it had. Also from the pics looks like a few scrapes. I'll pass until he at least responds.

    I bet it is not a oil line off since the 03's and up had the metal bands used to hold the oil lines on instead of the wire ties, Usualy the piston ring locating pin comes out alowing the ring end gap to rotate around to the exhaust port hooking the ring in the port damaging the piston and cylinder or the Connecting rod bearing has gone bad which requires crankshaft replacement and piston replacement also, Tommy Jordan

    IMO its a buyers market for the GP13's right now, keep shopping around and you'll locate a nice one, preferably with some mods done that will save you time/effort down the line. I have an 06 and honestly its worth more to me than I think I could sell it for, so i'll probably hold onto it, although I might test the market after the holidays just to see if I get any reasonable offers.

    The GP's (and all 2 stroke musclecraft) are in a funny spot, more expensive than a cheap 2 stroke, but only lightly less expensive than a used 4 stroke since the 4 stroke prices have dropped a little, this IMO is good for the buyer but not as good for the seller if they can't afford to be patient. Many of the GP's down here in FL priced in the 4K range have been for sale for quite some time. Its a tough sell if a buyer is looking at 5K priced 4 strokes as well.

    It's a buyers market for any 2 smokes...

    Gp 13s are great skis. I had a modded 13r that would doo 75.

    DITO ... my ski has only 47 hours total on it .. with every mod except porting ... fast as hell & still looks new ... I would be lucky to get $4K for it. Worth a lot more to me to keep it. So i will run it again CC this 2014 season ... it is just that when I get thrown in with a bunch of 4 stroke 260's & 300's I have to work so hard ... to get out in front & stay there. Ha Ha
