2 days to the maide voyage
Got a GP1200R in January , which has been sat for 2 years with fuel still in it by the previous owner
So after a labour of love, rebuilding the carbs with genuine seals, pop off testing and pressure testing - they are installed and ready
Fuel lines replaced , along with filters etc
Compression is 130 psi on all 3 pistons, and everything else checked out by a proper PWC mechanic.
So on Saturday morning , putting on the wet suit, and a sea survival jacket, and chancing the local lake - current temp of the water is ~4 deg c Brrrrrrrrr
I am like kid waiting for Christmas Day lol

And you drained the fuel tank and put in new fuel, right? Premix or oil pump?

Well after very cold day , my feet were totally numb, I am proud to say she ran sweet as a nut
Had to tweak the tickover as it was setup out of water, other than that , never missed a beat over 3 hours of riding , 40 Litres of fuel and £650 (~970 USD) of parts over the past 8 weeks.
Even managed to get the Go Pro mounted
