    Sponsons for GP1800R!

    I assume the Macc racing sponsons will work fine? They are on my 2012 VXR and will want to swap them out when the GP1800R gets here.

    I would think with it being a different hull they are not a direct fit to the gp, nor were they designed to be used with the gp hull. Worx and Riva both make sponsons for the gp1800.

    Well worx GP sponsons fit on vxrs? It should work then. It was for the first gen fzr/fzs series and the VXR. Until the fz changed design.

    I believe that is a typo. Fits on 2015+ vxr as they are the same hull as the gp1800. Pre 2015 vxr is a different hull

    They won't fit. Those sponsons fit the 2011-2014 VXR (old hull)

    The GP1800 and 2015 and newer VXR use either of the below sponsons

    Well that's terrible. Lol I wonder how hard it would be to reproduce them via a CNC machine. Or same design.
