1500 is good. see if it had the recall done on the hull. you will see pieces glued to the side of the hull under the steering tower when you pop the seat off. the 97's had some issues there. also look at the trim tabs. the stockers are weak plastic. use those points for leverage. I just sold a 99 with a fresh motor, some after market parts and no trailer for 2500 here in NJ.

oh yeah, as long as compression is good, expect a few hundred more hours before you need to re ring.

hey thanks for the replys and what exactly is the compression im looking for ?

A stock GP1200 with perfect compression should have 125psi across all three cylinders. The throttle must be held open and the battery fully charged in order to see 125 psi. With 231 hours, you may see 120psi.
