    Ha Ha Ha! Another Problem On My 01 Gp1200r!!

    Well I FINALLY got my gp1200r running thanks to jim's performance. I put it in the water and it was running fine and about 20 mins later, boom, the ski stops moving but the engine is still running. I almost flew over the handle bars!!! LOL. I shut it off and started it right back up and its going nowhere. So I got ANOTHER tow in and put it on the lift and lifted it up and had my brother start the ski while I looked at the shaft from underneath and no spin. So I think I broke the shaft. How much are these? does anyone have 1? This is like the worst ski EVER!

    its a 2001. I'm going to try to take it out of the water and get the exhaust off and see if I can find the problem a little better.

    the splines on the driveshaft and intermediate shaft are probably shot....

    back up a second check this first!!!!! i know it a long shot but happened to my buddy, check your motor mounts all 4 of his went and the motor jumped foward just enough for the connection to the driveshaft to be lost. if thats it i have 4 stock motor mounts or if your a hardcore wavejumper rider look into a set of aftermarket ones i think there called "gorilla grip " but i have no idea

    Alright. I got it out of the water and it seems that when I start it the bearing house inside of the ski is spinning. I havent taken the exhaust out yet. How do I take the shaft out of the ski?

    remove the cone on the back of the ski the spitter hose, 2 cables steering trim, then theres 4 12mm long bolts then after thats off. then you just pull it out impellar/shaft

    It's your intermediate shaft it's very common. Just make sure it did not take the splines out of the drive shaft too.
