    Found a 03 1300r in my area..

    Guys I found a 2003 gp1300r in my area. Gonna go look at it tomorrow.
    I kinda just want to see one in person to see what I think. Maybe this will push me to buy one faster.

    be sure to check for hull damage and most importantly--be sure the "yamaha" reinforcement recall has been done to the back in the pump tunnel area. All the front line production 2003 GPRs were recalled because of the pump shoe and intake grates being ripped off from the "stock form" power.

    I would bring a Snap-On or equal quality compression guage and test before you buy.Ask to ride it first, being the seller is local.Look for water in the hull.Check the rub rails and under the hull for cracks or any damage,just to see if it was taken care of.Take a good look at the plugs when you have them out.The ideal color is mid/dark tan.If you do ride it,bring a GPS if you have one just to compare it to other ski's,guessing its stock?Like Abbott said,check the history of the boat and see if the pump reinforcment has been done.

    Well I went by and looked at the ski today.

    It hasn't had the recall done as of what he knows and he is the original owner. Bought may of 03.
    He had a problem with one of the back head bolts backing out and cutting up the rear spark plug wire and cap. So it was all electrical taped up. I stoped wright there and kinda blew him off as it seamed to be a problem child ski. I will go back and low ball him with yall's thoughts.

    $5900 with trailer, life jacket and a cover.


    I'll give him $4500 that is it. I would have to yank all the ugly orange off of it! :P Then come up with a good grahpics kit.

    I'd compression test it before even making the offer.

    I agree with that I just didn't have my gauge. I was just taken a look
    at it to even see if it was worth it.
