    gp1200r pump sealiing

    Hello all, just a quick question about sealing the shoe on the 1200r. Mine is a 2000 model year. I recently found a few threads about sealing the shoe that say not to seal the shoe unless you also install an aftermarket intake grate. The only mods I have on this ski are carbs that have been rebuilt and rejetted to OSB's specs. I'm not planning on any others in the near term (this riding season), and I'd like to know if I were to seal the shoe and leave the stock grate intact would I get the infamous "buck" at full speed? Like I said, it's all stock, and I'll probably go ahead and add a grate in a couple of months, but I don't want to wait to seal the shoe. And, this one cavitates just as bad as all the other stock units. (The reason why I want to go ahead and seal it) Thanks!

    sealing the shoe helps with cavitation, but get rid of that stock grate asap!

    the stock grate can stuff and 64+ mph when you chop the throttle and cause a yard sale
