    I know proformance on a GP760?

    I know there is not alot to do to a 2000 Yamaha GP760. I have had it to 55 mph. I know there has to be a way to get to 60+. Is there?

    The GP760 runs 52 on a GPS. The easiest way to get one to 60 is put a GP1200 motor in it.

    A GP1200 motor is still going to be the easiest way. I do think you will have the fastest stock motored 760 before we are done. Once you reach 55 on the stock motor, a few bolt-ons will get you close to 60.

    Oh, there is no doubt about the 1200 being the way to go.... No replacement for displacement!

    But, like you said... We will get 60 out of this 760 before it is all over with.

    My 97 1200 was a pleasure to drive.It loved to wave jump,quick and nimble, and a great overall rider.That being said,IMHO I would do the standard mods to the 760,save a ton of money,and enjoy it for the great little economical performer it is.If you cant live without a 60mph ski pick up a used gpr 1200 at a great price this winter,and get into a low buck 70mph ride.Then you'll have a great conversion hull for later as the speed bug pumps his nector into your viens

    I had a 760 Dont spend a dime in it. You are better off selling, a a little money on top and get a 1200r. Stay away from them Factory pipes on the 760.

    FYU back in the day there was talk about the rear end of the hull dragging at the bumper rail. Some people just cut the rear lip off and I heard of 1 MPH speed gains
