    new GPR owner

    Hey guys new to the PWC world but been a big yammie snowmobiler for ever! Looking at buying an 06 gpr1300 with a stage 1 kit on it minus the power filter and took it out for a water test today. Ski ran well but porpoised a fair bit and was slow to turn and then very sharp. After the water test I noticed that one bolt was gone from the steering nozzle and the other was almost gone, I'm thinking this is the route of all the issues experienced would I be right? Can I add stainless bolts and but them inside the nozzle behind the threaded part or just loctite? Also off topic of that what compression should it have? Thanks guys look forward to being on here for all the right reasons I hope and not the bad!!

    If its the bolts I'm thinking of, there is a stainless sleeve that covers part of the threads. This allows the bolts to be fully tightened yet allow the nozzle to steer and be trimmed up and down. Without the sleeves it would be bolted in place. Loctite won't hold a loose bolt and your nozzle would be too sloppy without the sleeves.

    As Prism said, you need the stainless sleeves and you need to use blue loctite when you re-install them.

    I have the sleeve but the bolts are gone, I'm saying could I thread through the sleeve w a longer bolt and but it so as to have double the threads? Am I correct in assuming the handling and porpoising would be caused by the nozzle being right loose?

    Why not just order the factory bolts and loc-tite them in? Porpoising is typically in the plate/grate but I am sure you are getting some erratic behavior from the nozzle.

    I will order factory I was thinking maybe it was common and I could prevent it that way

    Factory bolts, factory sleeves and a little blue loctite is all you need.

    Normal compression on non-mod ski abut 120 to 125

    As far as fuel mileage goes, and let me preface this by saying I know it won't be like a vx, where do these come in when comparing to say an older sea doo twin 900 or the newer RXP? As for a vx, do they use twice as much fuel or not that bad?
