    My Gp1200r

    I finally found a GP1200R that I wanted. It is a 2000 with around 60 hrs on it. The motor lost the third cyl. and took the upper case with it. I have an engine on the way. I have to admit that I got one hell of a good deal on the ski. I will list everything below that it has. The hull is almost perfect with a little chip in the front near the hook, a little marine tex with fix it.

    2000 GP1200R
    Riva Flame arrestors with prefilter
    Riva free flow
    Riva trim tabs
    Riva ride plate
    Riva seat cover
    Carbs have been modded with t handles
    D plate and chip
    Wave eater clips
    Reed stuffers
    Carbon reeds, they are junk and need replaced
    There is other small stuff that is on it too that I can not remember.

    What do you guys think I should do with the engine. I believe the crank is still good. It turns very well and appears to be fine. The tow other cyl are good. Do you guys think I should find an upper, cyl, piston and rebuild this engine as a spare or part it out? I already have an engine out of an 03 XLT coming for this ski. Let me know what you think.

    I will make list of things that I know I will need and maybe some of you guys can help me out with some parts.

    Exhaust cover- The plastic cover on the exhaust, I will need bolts with the covers too.

    Reeds- The blocks are good the reeds are shot

    Spray some penetrating oil up in there and let it soak. Mount the puller and snug it down good and tight. Then firmly tap the end of the puller and it should pop off.

    I have a black plastic cover. Its complete but has a few wierd rub marks on it. I also have some stock reeds in excellent shape.

    birel, check with jeffsntx. He probably has everything you need.

    I just sold the exhaust manifold that I had.
    I have a gray exhaust cover. The one that WFO has is BRAND NEW, it came off of my motor but it does have some weird rub marks on it. I didnt even notice them. The one WFO has is black.
    I think WFO has a bunch of reeds.
    I do have the "Y" fitting but I dont think I have a flush hose. I will have to get back with you on that.

    Let me know. I am going to see if the manifold can be welded, but I would rather buy one.
