ID:	337642I bought a 2 ski package a couple months ago. One was a 97 GP1200 and the other a 99 GP1200 that I think may have been set up differently by RIVA?

    It has what looks to be a standard 65U I thought but has the RIVA flame arrestor triple setup and a bunch of RIVA stickers on it.

    I see a Worx ride plate and adjustable sponsons too...which I know nothing about. Is this a straight forward 65U motor with standard jetting on the carbs or what is typically different on these carbs than a regular SBN44 setup? I was considering putting this motor into my SUV since it runs so well...but I dont know if I can hot swap the setup or not.

    Are there any other cool/different parts in these 99 gp1200 RIVA models that have any value? I may be parting the entire ski since the hull has some smashmouth.

    Thanks WFO for the call-back on this question.

    I called RIVA and their tech told me that the carbs might be set up differently than other SBN44s but they could not be certain.

    Pulled the carbs and they were exactly the same as my asUV and XL1200 setups. They each had the 135 jet and the staggered small jets (100 front carb, 95 middle, 97.5 rear). All seats were the 1.2 N/S set. Just in caee anyone else reads this down the line wondering...
