Ride Plate and other questions
At first I have to say great forum.
I'm a total newbie in Jet Ski's and I took my 2003 Yamaha GP1300R yesterday out for my first ride on a ski ever.
Unfortunatelly I lost the ride plate the firts half hour. On the right side is now a hole where the inserts used to be and on the left the inserts were almost removed clean out of the hull. The ski was hal way filled with water when I took it out of the water. When I got home i tried to start it up but it didn't started, should I take out the carburator or just wait a couple days to dry up? I was reading and searching in the forum through a lot of posts and I know a lot more already but still need some help here.
-What ride plate should I buy now since the old one is gone? (don't has to be a special one since I'm a beginner)
-What ride plate inserts should I get? Some say the stock Yamaha some other say some RnD GPR Ride Plate Replacement Inserts for around $43.
- Should I do the tunnel reinforcment since I have to get some epoxy anyway .
-What kind of epoxy should I use to fix the Inserts and maybe the tunnel?
-Where can I order al the parts I need if possible from one dealer to save a little on shipping.
Like I said I'm new with this thematic and thankfull for any help I get!!
