    1) Pump tunnel re-enforcement kit (safety & piece of mind)

    2) Intake grate (safety & performance)

    3) Pump Plug Kit

    4) Jim's modded R&D rideplate

    5) Stepped stock sponsons

    6) Air mods to hood and bucket

    pictures, pictures, pictures...i want to see this new BLUE Gpr. Also, go over your ski yourself and make sure all exhaust/tubeing is all tight. Would hate to have a line loose and fill the ski up with water. We all know how some of our service techs. seem to be rushed a bit...

    Good point. I found this upon inspecting my '05 GPR several months ago. It's the water out from the bilge pump.... kinks aren't good in certain applications, this being one of them!!!

    I also found the three bolts holding the through hull exhaust fitting to the hull extremely loose.

    Check the trim cables... 9 out of 10 are loose from the factory.
