    800 had powervalves 120 hp was still a good ski for wavejumping.
    You can find a wrecked 1200 pull the motor and pump and electrics and use the 800 hull

    Paul,
    Unless it's been messed with, that's a 800.
    ALL gp1200, through every year have wing mirrors.
    Some people take them off, but it still leaves a cutout in the cowling which the ski in the pic does not have.
    Still not a bad ski for the waves though.Don't mess too much with the 800 powervalve engine though-it's a bit on the ragged edge anyway!
    Some info for you to help make your mind up:
    Gp800 0-20 mph 2.01 secs. 20-35 mph1.42 secs. top speed 57mph.
    Gp1200 0-20mph 1.70 secs. 20-35 mph 1.31 secs. top speed 60mph.
    That does not tell the full story though. with a little work. i.e a mild port, cdi, flame arrestors and head, the 1200 will do 0-40 in 2.7 seconds (Which is exactly what you want for wave jumping).
    Also, which is more important in my view-The gp800 uses a 144mm pump. The gp1200 uses the 155mm one.

    Good eye Mongoose. That does have the 800 cowl. The 800s were never very quick and if wave jumping is your primary goal I would look for the 12. My .02

    Hey Paul..

    I'm pretty certain that is an 800..

    My other ski is a gp1200... the reason WHY i'm NOT tearing my hair out over the 12r with pipes etc and ISSUES.. (lots of)

    The good thing is i'll bet its somewhere not far from me.. my guess Stirlingshire area..???

    The reason for this observation is that the sucker is reg'd at Loch Lommond (Milarrochy Bay)

    If you're wanting me to check it out for you i'd be happy to do it mate..!!

    Let me know what you think bud.....

    Gerry

    These old GP's are GRRrrrreat for wave jumping.. especially two up the one (man or woman) on back allways squeals like a big girl...!!!
