    PR

    its a very simple mod that you do by removing the space between the middle set of holes on your sponsons.

    it allows you to have the back rright down and the top right up with the middle part in the middle.

    what this does is smooths out the ride and stops GPR's from bouncing around.

    i had great results with this on my 06 and 02, just dremel it out and off you go.

    My friend was complaining of the 07 GP1300R listing while idling in no wake zones, anyone have any idea what this is and how to correct it?...PR...

    Does he mean side to side? The GPR's are nose heavy at no wake speed, just the way they are. As soon as you are on the throttle it is a completely different ride.

    Yup,
    just pull that lever on the right handle and it all goes away. The gpr can take a whole bunch of water when you first board it...bigger guys take more water in the footwell... and bigger guys are already pushing the loading limit. Add in a giant exhaust pipe, and it can tilt at idle. Luckily, it has nothing to do with low speed handling, low speed ride, or low speed manuevers. It's not a high-angle keel lean, it's just a weight issue. No biggie.

    Now if it PULLS to one side, look underneath the ski.
