    My new GP1200

    Got her for a steal, 97 single owner. Owner was a yami tech, who is now retired. Ski is all original, never a rebuild, perfect compression, not a scratch on it. Looks like it just came off the show room floor. I ran 61 gps yesterday on it, and it is all stock except for beach house sponsons, riva splash guard, primer kit, electric bilge pump, and metal trim tabs.

    BTW, which is the best setting for speed (and all around best) for the beach house sponsons? I can't seem to find any information on them... They seem to have two sets of screw holes on the spacers that are attached to the holes, then three sets of settings on the actual sponsons....?

    Looking for aftermarket parts! Let me know what you have!

    Solas prop
    Speed ride plate
    Flame arrestors with adapters
    etc...

    Anyway, just thought I'd show off, let me know what you guys think of my new toy!

    PS: haven't got my 3 year registration yet, so the sticker still reads 06 but it's OK!

    you wanna be in 3 foot of water before you start it up.

    set the spons all the way down in the rear, all the way up in the front.

    congrats on a clean ski!

    Really? You mean like go at an angle? The holes are in a straight line.. but I guess with the other sets of holes on the sponsons it could be done... hmmm Not exactly sure what you mean.. I'll take some pictures and perhaps it can be explained to me further.
