I'm on the fence about buying a cruiser. - the '06 GPR13 looks like the right choice for my conditions (tidal river-Hudson 12550).
- What should I expect to pay? (cash purchase w/out tax)
- What performance mods would you do with $1500 (Riva stage 1 $)
The answer to #1 will effect ALL. The sale of 98XPL and 96XP would help.
Thanx for your help,

gp13 best choice all around
expect to pay 9,100 - 9,200 cash out the door including trailer
If you have 1,500 dollars, don't rush out and buy a stage one ( i forget whats in it and their site is down right now)
I would get a R&D GP1200/800 Ride Plate (Not the 1300)
R&D 2-bar intake grate
R&D Trim Tabs
R&D Race Air Filter
R&D Fuel Contoller
R&D D-Plate (Not the Riva one-they are different)
R&D Pump Seal Kit
R&D Pet Tach 2100DX (You Have to have a tach to tune)
Solas Dynafly 14/20 Prop
Don't worry too much on heads and stuff like that yet, just get your basic bolt-on products first and you will be flying. This should be a good start and i think you'll be suprised at what you can get from all this. Good luck to you.

Hey john did you do the math on that list??? At a glance it's looking a bit pricey???

Hi there Abbott. i see you recomend the 1200/800 intake grate...
I have the R+D 1300 grate....whats the benifits of the 1200/800 grate.

Damn John...you did go a little over the budget I think
Steach...no doubt the GPR is going to be the best all around boat for a mixture of comfort and performance. It depends on your own level of performance as to what modifications to do. Right off the trailer the GP1300R is no punk. If I got an 06 1300 I would just RIDE it for a while and modify the engine/handling performance to my own comfort level.

Thanx for the ideas. Would it be better to break it in stock or w/ mods?

Do a search on the Riva forum for member Philip_GPR and look at his signature. Great info there.
Those with EFI GPR's, wouldn't he need an EFI controller first to make sure the fuel injection is set correctly for his conditions?
Any questions, ask away here.

The tach and GPS could be your first investment. The stock EFI system will work very well without a controller. A EFI controller on a stock boat
is not necessary, but has some benefits. You would be able to fine tune your acceleration and high speed metering citcuit.
