aftermarket bars or umi on gp
anyone have any pics of this on an older gp1200/800 so i could see what it would look like.
is it possible to put just 7/8ths bars that are 31" wide on the stock assembly?
or is UMI the way to go
i am just asking because my bushings are a little worn and with the umi setup it sounds like it changes the angle of the stem

I got what you need.
$125 shipped. 1 bar crossbar clamp has a crack from corrosion (bars don't flex at all), and UMI steering needs a $12 thrust washer from Jetski Solutions.

I don't have any pics from the side...maybe J-me does. But to answer your question as to repositioning the bars...the UMI stem moves the bars forward slightly and actually makes it easier to ride standing up or to position your weight over the bow of the boat. I'd definitely take up the deal at 125.00. It's not a hard install and is definitely worth the hour or so to get it done. The thrust bearing is an easy replacement and the other bearings should be fine...I've had one of my UMI systems for 8years and have only replaced the thrust bearing once. Everything else is fine on mine....one stem was on a race boat for several seasons and it's just fine also. J-me has made you a heck of a deal, snatch it up b4 someone else does.

32 1/2 inches wide. No other pics sorry.
Comes with PJs finger throttle and cable adapter, quick drop lever.
Grips are old and sticky but grip like hell. Bars are drilled and tapped for handle bar heat if you should need it.
