    GP1200R Bracket Upgrade/Pump Tunnel

    Greetings and salutations to all, This is my first post on the hulk. I have been an active member of the seadoo forum for quite a few years. However its time to finish my 1200r project so with and open mind here I am. A few years ago I left off reinforcing the pump tunnel with layers of "west system" epoxy and some thick fiberglass mat. I recall I did 6 or 7 layers.

    I understand that the brass inserts for the shoe and intake grate are areas of concern. To my knowledge the ride plate is at less risk of pulling the Inserts through the hull.
    My current hull has the factory glue scraped off and is ready to have the reinforced brackets installed and sealed.

    I read in an old post long ago that brackets number
    -(F1G-U8572-00-00) -07 VX Cruiser
    -(F1G-U8571-00-00) -18 Gp1800
    Would line up in a 1200R hull. This seems pheasable to me as the dimensions are similiar.

    If anyone can confirm this it would be very much appreciated. I no longer have access to milling equipment and as many of you know Carl from island racing has pretty much closed the doors. Thanks very much!

    To my understanding carl has closed down shop. When was the last time you were able to get in touch with him?

    I just used oem yamaha gp1300r brackets from the 2004+ model. I also had the tunnel reinforced. I think the greenhulk site sells both of these.

    What method did you use to contact him? Last I tried was a few years ago. Couldn't get a hold of him. Contacted wfo and he said Carl was trying to close down. Could have been wrong though.
