    Modded GP1200R 2001 F/S, runs but not good

    Ok, ski has about 140 hour on it and in pretty good shape overall. At present ski runs, but has an air/water leak somewhere. I had a local guy build this motor about 4 weeks ago, ran great first two times out not it is running like crap on the top end. Iím pretty sure it has a leak or an issue with one or more of the cylinders. Iím bummed but canít afford to rebuild this thing again. I am testing the waters to see if anyone wants the ski as is, if not Iíll part it out. This ski was running 68.5 mph last time out. Here is what it has, pics to follow later:
    • Hull has been trued at some point
    • Riva tabs, duckbills, ride plate (modded to 4.5 degrees)
    • Solas 13/20 prop with some sort of aftermarket cone (not sure brand)
    • Pump has been sealed very well
    • New Intermediate shaft and coupler
    • Riva domed heads with 41cc domes
    • Advent ignition and E-box that is clean enough to eat off of inside
    • Fresh battery and wiring
    • Oil injection removed
    • UMI complete steering with Riva bars and Riva throttle
    • Riva trim system with Riva lever
    • Fresh set of carbs with recommended jetting (125, 100, 1.5 n/s, 100g spring)
    • Riva FA adapters and Riva adapters
    • Beachouse adjustable sponsons
    • Hydro Turf seat cover
    • Riva Stinger Exhaust
    • New motor mounts
    I will consider partial trades for a modded Waveblaster or similar smaller ski, maybe a nice X2. I'll take $3000 cash (firm) for the ski as is. The parts alone are worth way more than that. Just don't have the time to break it down right now. I'm in Georgia, about 20 minutes west of Atlanta. Pics coming later today.

    Not really interested in shipping it. I think 3K is a steal, if not I'll have to find time to part it out.

    Pics in just a few.

    Oh, I'd jump that bad boy for $3k in a heartbeat.

    Heck, if I was in Atlanta this week, I'd pick it up.

    Sounds good, I figure someone out there can do more with it than I will. I really want something smaller and nimble to take down to the beach every now and then. I'm a standup guy at heart anyway.

    Always looking for partial trades as well. X-2 or Waveblaster.

    Anyone west from south Texas or west of Atlanta who is interested in this needs to make a deal and let me know. I am going to the Atlanta area at the end of July and can bring it back for you.
