    Man I want a GP 1200R

    Hello Guys


    I currently have a 2002 Kawasaki Ultra 130 D.I and I like it and all but I heard things can go wrong with its EMM very easily.

    I also already had it for 2 years and I am thinking it's time for something new, I put like 50 HOURS on it and now has 200+ hours.

    I really want a GP 1200r

    like this one

    I am wondering how much you think I can get for my Ultra 130 with or without a 07 Zieman trailer in perfect condition.


    Also how big of an improvement and how faster will the GP be, also I heard the GP can be modified unlike the 130.

    Thanks guys!

    I'm going to probably try and sell my ski for 2k or 2500 with trailer in the summer.

    I'll be going for the GP1200r, I love it.

    If you can, get a EFI! and one with gasvalves, or no valves! ___REALLY___
    Gasvalves are the round black mushrooms on the exhaust port, with a red knob
    EFI is a injection system ( no carbs ) Ski with EFI has no fuel switch, if i'm right.

    Hello, I have both a 2001 GP1200R &2008 GP 1300R, both very fast skis ... low hours on both. The 1200 has carbs and requires a little more attention. Yes, the 1300 does not have carbs it's Fuel Injected and no primer or choke needed. Both allow for several modifications .... only time & money are the limits. If you can locate a 1300 non power valve ski in Aussie land you should consider it ... if price reasonable. Good Luck

    i also second all posts favoring the 1300r, I love my 06... love it !

    but yes, the seat is wide, it took me about maybe 4 rides to get used to it, now I don't notice it anymore
