    2001 GP 1200r thoughts

    Hello,

    I need some thoughts on purchasing a used 2001 Yamaha GP 1200r 120 total hours, top end rebuild 2 hours ago. Asking price is 2800
    Thats all I have right now as I am waiting on a response to an email.

    This is our first ski so I need recommendations and further questions.

    Thanks in advance.

    Drew, make sure you water test it before purchase. Have the seller list out any modifications, i.e. D-Plate and chip, carbs rebuilt, etc...

    If it hasn't had oil line service (or been converted to premix), D-plate and PV clips/couplers at 120 hours, look it over REAL good. Take a good compression tester as well. And lastly, never take anybody's word on a top end rebuild unless it is documented with the VIN number on a service order from the company who did it. "It has a new top end" is one of the most overused phrases in the 2 stroke world.

    Great ski if the reliability mods mentionedhave been done. Plate, grate and prop will make that ski a lot of fun.
