    2000 Gp1200r

    Purchased one cheap with a seized middle cylinder. Engine was out when I bought it. Previous owner said that a local Yamaha shop told him an oil line poped off which was the problem. I had the cylinder fixed and am now piecing it all together. I don't see where this "oil line" popped off as it all looks good to me, so I am curious as to why the middle cylinder seized. I have done many motorcycle rebuilds, this is my first waverunner.

    Anyway, It looks like a very tight fit to install this engine in the ski and I am wondering if there are any installation techniques/procdures out there that I can reference. The service manual doesn't say anything about installing a complete motor. I just don't want to get into this not knowing some tricks or things I should have done first ect.

    Any helpful links out there?

    Welcome to the forum...

    Oil lines do come off but I have seen it used as an excuse for other unknown problems.

    You need to go through those carbs from top to bottom before even starting the ski.

    And pressure test the engine for air leaks.
