    new to the forum questions about Yamaha gp1200

    New to the forums, thanks in advance for any help. Not sure where to post this so apologies if its in the wrong spot. I got a 97 Yamaha gp1200 on a rotten trailer recently. I was told that it ran when the trailer broke and had sat since. I pulled the motor and found the pistons had rusted to the cylinder walls, tried all the tricks on here that I could find to no avail. I don't think its worth rebuilding its obvious the ski was neglected and I'm sure it needs more than a rebuild. My question is I can part it out on eBay but with my lack of knowledge of skis I don't know what parts would be in demand and what they would be worth. A local guy who does ski repair offered me a couple hundred for the whole thing. Should I part it out or just take $200 and run? And if I should part it out what parts are valuable and how valuable are they? Thanks

    Part it out you'll make your money back on the ski if you got it for cheap....if you search for parts on eBay you can get a price range for parts.
