    99 Yamaha xl 1200 ltd

    Is this a decent ski to have? I have a chance to trade for it but know nothing about it. Fast? Reliable? I did the search and didn't find what I need which is basically is it a POS or not?? TIA.

    I luv my '01.
    Theres a handful of "must-do's" for the ski (see my sig), but its pretty solid after that.

    There are some must have add-ons
    waveeater clips/couplings 100 bucks
    D-plate & chip 90 bucks

    there are some highly recommend add-ons
    intake gate 100 bucks
    Pump plug kit 75 bucks
    Ride plate 200 bucks

    the first 2 can ruin the engine... the last 3 will make it ride better
    just plan on spending a 3 day weekend working on it and 600 bucks and you WILL LOVE this ski
    good luck

    Dayum STL you are up early! I need to do these mods as well as some others (D-plate, F/As rebuild carbs etc).and hopefully it will transform the ski
