    Newbie needs help!

    I have a 99 gp1200. Has low hours and stock. Converted to premix. Runs and rides great. Handle very good also but now I/m wanting to start modding. Whats the first thing I should get for it? Heres what I was thinking.

    Rideplate (What kind)
    Intake grate (What kind)
    Solas prop
    Riva flame arrestors
    Mill the stock head for 145psi/93oct (How hard is it to take off the stock head?)
    Protec trim tabs.
    Like to get to 70mph. Any advice is needed!

    My 99 right now has
    R&D ride plate
    R&D intake grate
    Solas XO prop
    Stock carbs and air box
    140 psi compresion
    No tabs (its a 99)

    If you want to go 70 mph it can be done single pipe 97sleeper is doing it or it can be done with pipes a little bit easier some say

    It starts geting fun about 65mph If you go 70 plus with a piped ski it is even more fun if you have the desire.

    Talk to 97sleeper he can get you started hes the fastest single piped pump gas ski out there.

    Your head is easy to remove

    Thats what I wish I had done to mine right now. How fast is your ski right now with all those mods? Hows the holeshot? Did you mill your head to get 140psi or buy an aftermarket one? Are the flame arrestors worth the price or not? What about the vf3's? Thanks for the replie man!
