    GP1300R tank is a drop-in replacement and has the nessesary mount for the VX fuel sender. Don't try to retrofit a 1200R tank--good chance you'll have a leak.

    No reverse on the GPR... the cable...

    One update here. Use the GP/XLT800R waterbox and waterbox-to-resonator hose (you can pick them up on eBay). The 800 has a 2.5" nipple and does not require welding.

    I had both a stock VX prop and a Solas 18/22, and both seemed to be about the same top speed. Hole shot with the Solas was better.

    The distance between the mounts on the 800 motor is a little less, but the width is the same. Best first step is to figure out what pump setup you want--stock 800 or VX, and then dry fit the motor...

    Yeah, I know I could get an R&D ride plate and have Rich (WFO) modify it and pick-up a few mph, but at the expense of handling. I'll probably put some 3mm washers on the front of the stock ride plate...

    Runs and rides great, but could only hit 53 mph (basically like a stock VX). I am planning on getting a new Solas prop and pitching it down to 18/24. I'm also having a problem getting the nose out of...

    That's right, no modifications. Everything just bolts right in. Once I figured it all out, a super easy conversion, and should be a very reliable GPR that can go 100+ miles on a tank. I still have to...

    Original plan was to use a FXHO pump and 2" spacer, however, the 28" driveshaft is too long. So that won't work. (I don't want to move the motor mounts.)

    Using the 2009 VX pump, the VX driveshaft...
