    Am I messing up getting a gp1300r over the fzr?

    Looking at a 2008 gp1300r with 7hrs on it and a triton trailer for 7k.

    called and found a dealer that has an 09 fzr in blue for 9600 out the door plugs $700 for the trailer..

    not sure which way to go..

    Buy them both and install the FZR motor in the GPR.... Then hold on tight

    Yes, in my opinion you would be "messing up."
    GP1300r was a great ski for it's time, but nowadays you have to go with the 4 stroke.
    Resale value alone would dictate this, not to mention the savings in fuel and oil.
    Performance wise it's a no brainer; test ride them both on the water and you'll see.

    If you have to have new, or only want to ride, spend the extra $2600 for the FZR.
    For many here on the board half the fun is in modding the ski. If you like to get your hands dirty, buy a used GP1300R and have a ton of money left over for go-fast parts. You can port it, mill the head, upgrade flame arrestors, intake & ride plate and outrun stock FZR's for half the money. Two strokes are simple and very forgiving, and you can troubleshoot right here.

    +1 right here, the gpr is a good to tinker on, the fzr to just get on and ride. Either way you won't be disappointed

    went with the low hr gp1300r (6.8hrs), I perfer the looks of it over the fzr the fzr is nice but how the back end extends way past the seat I was liking that too much I'm sure it can out run me for now but I'm cool with that. The owner I believe is a member on here so if you come across this it was a a pleasure doing business with ya and can't wait to get it in the water.
