    Best year GPR???

    I know there are alot of conflicting answers to this question but in your opinion what is the best year for the GPR? I am considering buying one and want to narrow down the years for my search! Here is what I want:

    - EFI (Don't want to have to deal with rejetting carbs!)
    - 05 pump of course is a plus
    - Not real excited about the black and gold ski's

    So I guess that pretty much limits me to either an 05 or an 03-04 that has been converted to the newer pump...

    I am wanting a build a quick rec ski, but don't want to have to constantly wrench on it to keep it running! Opinions??

    04 model
    Has less problems, updated brackets and stronger overall
    hull. And the power valve motors will always make more power.
    The only drawback is you need to update to the 05 and up
    pump.

    Why not just go with an 05?? I belive mine is fast, being all it has is a 1200 intake grate, jims plate (notff), 14/20 df and some air mods and I hit between 70.9 and 71.4. Plus the colors are black and white with a silver seat. Graphics can always be changed. Just my 2˘.

    Oh I will mod it! It will get at least:

    -D-plate
    -14/20
    -Jetworks
    -Milled stock head
    -Flame arrestors
    -reed stuffer (If not VF3's)
    -Jims or Island Plate
    -Grate
    -PPK
    -tunnel reinforcement
    -EFI tuner
    -stepped stock sponsons

    I just don't want to deal with carbs or the headache of tripples, so the 05 sounds good to me!

    I would go with the 05 , thats what I have and love it. One of my friends has a 06 and the black scratches way to easy, especialy in sand
