    Yamaha GPR assembly?

    Does anyone know for sure if the GPR needs some assembly, like the steering needs to be installed?

    YES! The handlbars need to be installed along with the barpad, trim system and cables and throttle and cable. The steering "column" is intalled though

    Hi seedoo, can you please explain in depth how things are packaged and why? What exactly need to be done? are the cables and throttle already on the bars and just need to be fished thru the hull? or is it a big box of parts that needs assembly, appreciate it bro!

    When I saw one on a crate last, I believe the cables were already through the hull and sticking out by where the bars went. The handlebars needed to be attatched to the steering "column", the throttle hooked up to the bars (and probably adjusted), the whole trim assebbly hooked up (two large push/pull cables that go to the trim mechanism by the gas tank), and the bar pad needed to be installed. I dont know why they did it this way. I think the bars were either in the hull or in a box on the crate somewhere. I can't remember. This was just from seeing the ski on the crate at the dealer. I have not had experience opening these things up and actually putting them together

    Leaving the handle bars on and then building a crate around them would mean a lot of empty space in the crate. By the time you stack them to ship, you'd not be able to get as many crates in the containers or on the trucks. Pretty standard practice for everything from skis to quads to motorcycles, etc.

    Thank you very much seadoo951!

    I now have to go over everything these asshats did. everything was loose, the bar pad was cock-eyed, not even in the locator brackets , and the hold downs for the steering bar was installed backwards, there is a punch mark which means FRONT>, bc there is a different gap when tightening down the hold-downs. The jackass who assembled my ski should be fired, prolly some atv or bike mechanic, more like lawnmower mech but`s that giving them to much credit, sheesh!

    In the crate the bars are off the steering stem. Not sure if the trim cables are installed tho. If I get time this week I will go by and take a few pics of the 08s at my local dealership still in crates.
