  2. Bad oil injection lines! Thankfully I caught them in time.

    So a week ago I take my friend and I take out my two, old-school 2-strokes. He rode the '97 GP1200 and I rode the '94 Raider. The GP ran great but the Raider had some bogging on acceleration but...

    I'm trying to confirm what you're saying. After you put the stock intake grate back on, your speed was 62mph. I'm assuming that you saw 62mph with the R&D grate as well? You were seeing 68mph...

    My daughter started naming our skis probably about 6-7 years ago. They all have fruit names that correspond to the main colors of the ski. The '94 Raider is "Plum" because of the purple. The "97...

    Thank you, Dave for chiming back in to this thread with a gps measured top speed.

    Even though your 61mph sounds slow by 1-3mph, we don't know what kind of ride conditions you were experiencing. ...

    twerth, it's interesting that one of your two GP1200s is pulling to one side. I've got a 1997 GP1200 and I have a similar problem that I haven't been able to solve. If you've got a lot of time,...

    Dave, I just noticed your 2012 VXS in your avatar. I think that you got rid of it. I've got the same color 2012 VXS. It runs neck and neck with my blue 2013 VXR. Phenomenal skis!

    Since you've...

    If you haven't been measuring speed with a gps then you really don't have a reference. My 2013 VXR has registered a best of 67.5 on gps but the dreamometer shows around 72mph. I usually don't waste...

    Wow, Steve! You've had a lot of skis!

    I used to be a saltwater boater when I lived in Florida. I'm 100% sure that the saltwater was the reason for my frozen PWC steering cables. In addition, I...

    If you have some regular automotive wax in your garage, I'd try that first. It can't hurt, it'll be free since you've already got it and the ski will look brand new again. Hopefully it removes the...

    Now that you mention it, I do think that I read years ago that the later models didn't have trim tabs. The trim tabs on the 97's are actually on the bottom of the hull and don't extend past the...
