    Gp1200 waverunner

    Hi lads.
    Only new on this so sorry now if I'm posting in the completely wrong place. I just have a a question about my gp1200. It's going great thank God. But I wanted to get it quicker off the line. Is an upgraded prop well worth doing? Or any other suggestions.
    Thank you

    First, make sure the plastic trim tabs are intact at the rear bottom of the hull. They are known for breaking off. Have you read about the balanced return mod for these? Worth doing. And yes, a nice Skat impeller will make a noticeable improvement over stock. Also a scoop type intake grate will help keep the ski hooked up.

    Well lads I decided to get a new prop as there is some room around it that I'm presuming shouldn't be there. I've looked up different ones to get but cant understand which one to get. I'm looking for the best one for take off but effecting the top end as little as possible also. Any chance someone could send me a link to one? Soho is what I'm reading most about??
    Thanks
