97 GP1200 Triple Pipe Install
Hey guys, first post here as I was referred from another forum. I tried a search first, so I apologize if I missed what I'm asking for. I have a 97 GP and it's pretty well set up, only thing really missing are the triples. I have them, the original owner bought them to install and never did, I had him throw them in with the purchase. I've rode the ski for the last 2 years without but was thinking about putting them on.
Are there any good how-to's out there online. I downloaded the installation directions off Factory Pipe's website.(Which appear to be for the GPR) Anything I should look for? Is there someplace to find a template for what I have to cut and so forth? Torque specs?
I know it's alot of questions but I appreciate any responses. Some pics of installed pipes would help greatly too. I'm pretty mechanical, and do quite a bit of my own car engine work so I figure I can sort this thing out, just looking for some direction.

you'll need to rejet carbs, and get an ignition that will get you up to 7500 rpm..the pipes come on about 72 and peak in the 74-7500 range if i remember right. Run a gallon of race gas in every tank. Compression 135-155.
repost in the old school section..lots of GP triple pipers in there.

I have the directions. I will get them up here tomorrow. I have the pdf and the original corral word perfect doc from factory. I feel the only mods you'll need would be rejetting carbs and riva cdi or protec mod cdi. oh get he compression up a bit too. welded crank I think is a must. anything in the 7500 rpm range will need it or you'll have truoble later.
