    Yamaha Gp1300r or Kawasaki 15f?

    So i read the thread about the gpr throttle corosion and i was wondering if they would still sell the 08 gpr's, i have'nt had an answer to that yet.
    Now i dont knoe what to do.

    But do u think the kawasaki 15f compares to the gpr in any ways??
    because if i cant get the gpr i am thinking about getting the 15f.
    plz!

    modding the gpr to get to 70-72 mph is waaaay cheaper but if you want a nicer ride in rougher water and better gas mileage the 15f is a nice craft. The gpr hull is a very good handling hull in smooth the 15f does really good in chop.If you want to MOD gpr is for you, If you just want a do a few light bolt-on mods the 15f is a really great craft. It all comes down to personal preference i guess. p.s. the gpr throttle cable corrosion will is fixed for free by the yamaha dealer down here. Yamaha still is reliable and so is the 15f with the new price drop it really is a hard choice.

    Dont let a bad throttle cable spoil your decision.The GPR with simple bolt-ons will give you great speeds and handling.

    Just make sure they do the recall before you get it. You will be very happy with it.Take pics of the new baby when you get her.
