    looking at buying a 2000 GP1200R

    I'm looking at buying a 2000 GP1200R that i saw on craigslist, the seller says the pump needs to be replaced because it got stolen in storage but he does have all the parts, he says it might also need an Exhaust temp sensor, and the carb's may need to be rebuilt. What do you think it would cost to get it running he wants $1800 no trailer.

    sound like he is asking 800 to much. Have the compression tested. Definately rebuilt the carbs, ditch the oil injection. A complete pump assembly 200-300 with nozzle. Trailer 200-400. Update the power valves with wave eater clips, d-plate & cat temp chip

    Non running condition, you could have several unforseen problems. Hook it up to a hot battery and see if it will even turn over before you even entertain $1K.

    the problem with that is that the seller lives in New York, it's about 7 hours away so i can't really make a trip there to see it. I'd rather buy a GPR off here where people can be trusted but i can't afford that right now and i didn't know how much it would cost to get this into a running ski.

    1800 is high for the things it needs done, especially no trailer

    Don't waist your time with a ski 7 hours away that doesn't run. Way too many problems that can be there. Now if he was giving it away thats a different story.
