    Question regarding GP1200R Compressions 65,0,60

    Looking at a buying a 2001 GP1200r donated to charity. They have disclosed that the motor may need repair or replacement. Engine compressions read (PSI) 65,0,60. I am looking for opinions about what you would pay for a ski in this condition, and also if it may just be a top end rebuild or based on the compression readings this is a complete tear down and rebuild. Now I know at a minimum I am looking at a top end rebuild but since I havent owned a Yami before I figured at least a few of you guys would have opinions about worth, possible repairs etc. I understand its difficult to know without have physical access to the ski to really examine, but hey its charity and for the right price it could be worth the risk. Thanks

    Most guys here, including myself, would say if you plan on keeping it long-term, you are looking at a crank as well, at a minimum, in addition to the top end job. Also have to find out and correct what caused the engine to blow as well, so that will cost some $.

    If you say what they want we may be able to say if its a deal or not. Also depends on the condition of the overall boat as well, hull, pump, seat, gauges, etc.

    Its an Ebay auction starting at $650. I cant link to Ebay since I am at work but I am sure it can be found with a simple search. Advertised as kept indoors, new jet pump last season, looks pretty clean considering its a '01.
