    i have the article from splash april 1999-the single pipe was 155hp and ran 66.94mph with 0-60 in 5.41 sec. and the triple pipe was 185hp guaranteed over 70mph-nice ski but very expensive $12995 and an additional $2750 for the pipes

    interesting...........Do you know how many triples they acctually made? Graphics looked pretty cool. I bet when you called to get parts and they asked for model and you said 99 gp1200R they got confused. So did Yamaha give them a factory warrenty????

    says they built 50 but no break down-came with one year warranty from yamaha and 90 day coverage of mechanical defects due to engine mods covered by riva but all handled by your dealer-also came with a special 1200r manual and a dedicated customer service hotline

    Well if it was a deticated customer service by riva then thats means it wasnt so deticated......well more deticated than r&d or factory!

    This guy has been trying to sell this http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Yamah...QQcmdZViewItem for a while! he had it listed as a 1200r cylinder so when I emailed him telling him it was not an R motor he let me in on the R=Riva model

    Like Big Mark said...These were limited edition 1999 GP1200's. Riva did the limited edition to help celebrate thier 1998 World Championships. Considering all the aftermarket pieces that went onto the boats, the fact that they were limited to 50 units (total, single pipe and triple pipe), tagged with special production tags from Riva, assembled and tuned by Tim Judge, the original prices were not that far out of line. I dropped several thousand on my 1999 right out of the gate on aftermarket parts and didn't get the benefit of Tim Judges knowledge or experience to help make it all work. The triple pipe boats would've been some of the quickest and fastest you could've bought back then. Think about how many dollars we have tied up in our ski's now, buying alot of parts second hand? Some folks are still strying to eclipse the 70mph barrier, fewer still have done it on "Old School" rides. If I would've had the money in 1999, I would've bought two.....a single for the wife and a triple for me. I'm sure I would've been money ahead now.
