    '06 GPR Season-End Maintenance Results & Read My Plugs

    Well the season is winding down and I decided to give the GPR a little love.

    Checking torques, greasing things up, etc, etc... Only real issue were the trailer bearings seem to be giving up. I'll be replacing those soon.

    Ski is an '06 GPR with 62 hours.

    Checked compression and scored the following:

    #1 135 psi
    #2 135 psi
    #3 132 psi

    Quite happy with that.

    Replaced the plugs. The old ones are below. Any thoughts on how they look?

    Ski runs perfect, loving every second of it. I am incredibly pleased with the rough water setup.

    Thanks, guys...

    Woody, I'll confess... Those are the plugs I bought the ski with. I slacked on replacing them bigtime since it ran so good. So the hours on the plugs are unknown, could be all 62 of them LOL. I'll be a little more vigilant about it from now on in tune with my OCD side.

    I checked out my trailer bearings.. Yea.. they are shot. No wonder the trailer made so much noise on the road hahaha... It's only a 2006 tho... Maybe lack of grease and a bad seal (there was water inside the hubs).

    Thanks again, fellas!

    be really careful with your trailer or it could cost you big time.

    when you replace the bearings buy a set of good quality bearing buddies so you can pack them with marine grade grease to protect them. dont use normal grease as the salt water tends to wash it away where as the marine stuff is way more sticky.

    i like to replace my plugs every 25 hours or so....

    Izz0... Yes, I take the trailer very serious when it comes to this. I will be replacing everything with entire new hub assemblies. I have it all apart as I type.

    The trailer has bearing buddies on it already so those are ready to go. And as for grease, I use Amsoil's Water Resistant Lithium Complex grease. I should be good to go.

    Thanks for the tips!
