    Pro 785 vs Pro 1200

    Experts and pros! been doing a lot of searching but have been coming up quite a bit empty. A lot of info exists on both of these boats but I am having trouble trying to build a run-down list of the differences, ups-and-downs, and general opinions on these two boats head to head.

    Obviously displacement is different, and it seems to be the general consensus that the Pro 785 is the cream-o-the-crop for polaris performance boats, but comparitively, what are the differences between these two boats, and why would you take one over the other?

    Thanks alot in advance, as always, we may be looking to add to the already overpopulated marina that exists in my garage

    If I completely missed said list/comparo linky me please?

    TIA!

    The 785 will out handle and run will out run a pro 1200 stock for stock boats ,the 785 is tripple piped from the factory .The 1200 i would say in stock form is more easier to maintain for just your average rider but the mildly performance 785's run all day long with no problems at all it's just like anything the more performance add ons the more problems you have . I have both and would take my 785's over my 1200 anyday but either way you can't lose

    Is that the reason the smaller displacement motor makes more power than the 1200, the triple pipes? Why does the 785 rev to such a high rpm? and whats this rpm range compare to a 1200? Is there a significant carburetion difference between them also? I always wondered how/why the 785 was so much a better motor..
    When you say the 785 outhandles a 1200, is that due to a hull discrepancy? weight distrubution? pump advantage?

    As far as rpm's go a good running stock 785 will run 7800 to 7950 all day long i think the 1200's run 6500-6750 now if you triple pipe a 1200 they will rev around 7200-7450 i think and if you can find a set of 1200 race pipes it will rev 7900-8000 rpms . As far as the ride the 1200's top deck is taller and it seems like your riding way higher but i have not rode a triple piped 1200 yet , but next summer i will . They both use the same pump setup and rideplates and sponsons but i think it's just the top deck that makes the difference .

    see now thats new info to me?! so the addition of a triple piped setup will increase rpms?! or is there a modification to the limiter?

    Both the pipes and the cdi being recurved will bring you more Rpm's

    I got to ride a pro1200 with pipes, flywheel, carbs and many other goodies... A true rocket and would carve some CRAZY turns.


    If I could find a pro785 for the right price....

    In stock form, the 785 will outrun the 1200 all day long. If you add pipes to the 1200, be ready to hold on for dear life. That is a wicked ride.
