    GP1200 Pricing??

    I have an opportunity to pick up a 1998 GP1200 with 140hrs. This machine has a bad middle cylinder and does not currently run. The owner offered it to me for $450 with a clean title. I currently have 2 GP1200R's but I figured for the price, this may not be a bad addition to the fleet. What are some opinions on this deal? Other than the blown top end, the rest of the ski looks to be in good shape. My boss has an SUV with the 65U in it and it seems to be very reliable (other than not liking super cold start ups.) Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Jump on it , 98/99 best years ... stay away from the 97 (red/white/black). Stock is 84mm so you can run up to 86mm and fix it up . Wonderful skis

    Hmm, this is a red/white ski. Titled as a 1998 though. What was wrong with the 97's?

    Early versions of the 97 had Hull delamination problems . they were also much slower due to the exit nozzle on the pump in 1998 1999 they added five more degrees bow up via the exit and also they also made revisions on the carburetors for the 98 and 99 models

    Interesting, did they produce red ones in 98? I've only seen blue.

    Interesting. This ski must be a 97 then. It is def red white and black. I assume a nozzle from a 98-99 would bolt right on the 97 pump? Where would I start to look for delamination issues on this bike? I appreciate all the help!

    It's a ski not a bike ! :-p

    In the back by the batteries see if there's a green dot that means it had the recall .
    done .

    Yes on the exit nozzle
