GPX GPR Meets FXHO
Hello to every one who takes the time to read this. My name is Nick and I'm a Yamaha watercraft tech employed at sunsports cycle and watercraft in Fort Myers, Fl.This is my fist post and i hope you enjoy.
Well this is my own project ski. A 2001 gp1200r hull with a 05 fxho motor. For the most part it was a simple bolt in operation. I wanted to keep it kinda factory and kinda race. I mainly wanted to keep it under budget!
I haven't had it in the water yet, but i will soon.
For the most part it is stock. I do have on it Riva intake and trim tabs. I have solas impeller, but I am currently running all factory 05 fxho drive line. I also just wanted to what it would be like to run it with out a water box, so I had a custom exhaust tube made outta 3.5" aluminum. I also used an aluminum v-band clamp and welded it to the factory peice.
It has only been rough assembeled, but I'm in the process of cleaning up the routing and mounting. I just slapped it together to have some fun for now.
please feel free to throw any comments or questions my way.

I am happy to see you did a stock conversion. I would love to see what it runs with that motor and setup you have in it. We also need videos

I wanna hear how that straight pipe sounds on a High Output. Gas mileage should really be improved over the carbed 1200 motor also nice ski

I have been thinking about doing this.
Should get 150+ miles to the tank and 70mph.
Keep us posted.
