    PRO 1200

    Hey I a saw a pro 1200 on ebay for sale. Does this ski out run the pro785? I am staying with buying the 785 but I was wondering. Does it also have the triple pipes? Good looking ski but I am sure the reserve is high.

    the 785 is much quicker,but about 2 mph slower,the 1200 does not come stock with triple pipes.the top deck is a different layout between the 2 as well.the 1200 gets way better fuel consumption,turns 6700 rpm with 40mm carbs vs 7800 rpm and 44mm carbs,both have 10 gallon tanks

    The 1200 doesn't handle as good as a 785 and the ride is way different a stock 785 will run 60-63 mph i really don't know what the 1200 did stock but i don't think much more than the 785 .

    thats right on the handling if the 1200 is still stock. forgot about that.the 1200 was designed with triples in mind but not sold with them.the motors back 2" and the tanks offset 4" to the right.once triples are installed the foward weight balances the ski out.biggest issue i ever hadf was getting the ski to cut as hard to the right as it did to the left,but an ancient minnesota secret rectified that
