    GP1200R Build about to start.

    Hello All,

    I have been reading and researching for months on here about what to do to my 2000 GP1200 and I finally made the leap.

    Riva ride plate
    Solas 13/19 Impeller
    Pump plug kit
    Riva top loader intake grate
    50mm steer nozzel

    I am hoping that I can get some proformance gains out these.

    What does everyone think?

    Thanks for all of your great advice.

    Hi welcome to the forum. Thats a good way to start. I noticed you didn't have a D-plate on there. Those are known to fail and is always one of the first things i recommend on a GPR next to intake grate.
    I live in Brick (right by you) so if you ever need a hand or set of eyes hit me up

    Hey man, I would go with a R&D ride plate they are actually faster then the Riva. If you want to spend a little more coin i would go with a Jims Performnace FF R&D plate. Most def get a D-plate and a cat sensor chip like Chris said.

    Before I did any of that, I would do the reliability mods first.

    1. Pump tunnel reinforcement
    2. Oil pump block off and premix
    3. D plate and chip

    Then you can move on to speed mods.

    Just my .02

    Also, don't forget the Waveeater Clips on the power valves!

    The D-Plate is in my list. I didnt think it was a top pick at the time when i ordered everything I will be sure to pick one up soon.

    Where and how does it install?

    The D-plate is located at the widest part of the stinger pipe under the factory plastic Yamaha grey cover. You would need to remove the stinger pipe out of the ski, then remove the catcon, replace with Dplate, reinstall, and change add a resistor or cat chip. Try a search and there are detailed directions for all of this. Pretty easy to do with a socket set and some general tools.
