    Need help/what to buy

    I am looking for my first jetski but not sure what I want, how is the gp800r on gas as compared to the 1200r, I would really like a 4-stroke but don't know if I would like that big of a jet-ski. I have rode my buddy's yamaha 2 seater and like it because of its size, what do you guys suggest, thinking 800r/seadoo rxp/ ultra 150/
    What is the positives and negatives on these, any recalls or tips Thanks

    You are on the Yamaha side of the forum so of course I am going to say get the GPR. I wouldnt waste my time on the 800R. Go for the 1200R or even better the 1300R. There is a clean 03 1300R in the classifieds right now for a great price.

    what would be the difference as far as ride time on gas between 1200r 800r, I found a 2000 1200r for $5500 and a 2006 1300r for $7700

    Both of those are pretty high if they are stock machines.

    Here is a good used ski in the classifieds. Very good price and it is very clean.

    yeah those were stock ski's, thanks for the link thats a good looking jet-ski, about how many hours are people getting out of these jet-ski's if they are properly maintained?

    Its hard to say around here because of the modifications people are doing to them. Im sure there are people with hundreds of hours with no issues.
