My friend recently got a 2001 GP 1200 R and talked me into buying a 2000 GP 1200 R since I like his so much...

I usually do more research on stuff like this before I buy it, but honestly it was an Impulse buy after I had so much fun on his the last two weekends...

I'm completly new to Wave Runners.... I've been out maybe 4-5 times at most...

1st Couple of Questions are...

Is there a site that would have the specs and details on the older rides, like the 2000 and 2001???? I'd like to know more (all I can) about it...

2nd, Do these have to run on the Yamalube oil or is there another oil thats just as good for cheaper? If not, thats fine... I'd rather spend a bit more and get the right stuff, but I don't want to needlessly spend money...

3rd, there are tons of ATV, motorcycle and truck rags. Are there any for Wave Runners? I know I've got tons to learn and I might as well do some mroe reading...

If things go my way, I get to pick mine up in the morning...

I'll post some pics if I do, but it won't be anything exciting, same thing you all have seen hundreds of times or more...

congrats, you just bought the fastest hull available... good decision...

if your cat-con is still in the exhaust then you need to run yamalube,, but if you have a d-plate in then you can run any ashless oil......

theres alot to know about gpr's,,, ive written a couple long posts on this site about some gpr mandatory mods,,, check those out it will get you in the right direction...
