    Keep the GP1300R and upgrade or?

    Should I keep my GP1300R, or sell it while I can?

    I will sell it and get a RXP or a SHO and keep them stock for awile, or I can keep it and upgrade it more.


    What would you do?

    I don't know if the RXP or SHO does much better on gass but if they do keep that into consideration.

    i would say just keep your 1300. it is one of the greatest handling hulls on the water and is soo much fun.
    keep it and modd it a little

    What are you looking for in a ski ?
    2 seater, 3 seater, economical on gas, flat water, rough water, etc ?

    Lots of differences in the 3 boats you are looking at.

    I ride on lake water, so the water varies...


    The gp is an awesome machine, and I love it. But how many more bolt ons can I get before I am limited....

    Save the GPR. Give it a couple years and wait for people to start wrecking SHO powered skis. Pick up the engine and drop it in the GPR hull.

    I don't know about that. My modded 1300 with all but porting only gets 2.5 hours on a tank if I somewhat baby it. If I do alot of drag racing with freinds, I can watch the fuel gauge move. 14 gallons in 2 hours is the average for me.

    To the original question; keep the gpr, mod it, then buy a fast 4 stroke and keep it close to stock.

    Kirk is dead on. My ported 1300 gpr used more gas than my stage 3 RXP.
    gotta say I miss the gpr hull for smooth water but I enjoy the bigger RXP for the longer cruises (100 mile days) especially in rough water or when I need to carry a passenger
    If you a serious about looking I would investigate the FZR/FZS it looks to be a good hull and a lot of fun.
