    Re: New to Honda

    Thanks for all the advice. I will go into it with an open mind.

    I am in fresh water. I've had my GPR in saltwater but it was briefly in Crystal River, FL and it was easy riding so the hull didn't get any water in it. That would be the only time my skis would see salt water.

    Oh and btw, if you get the X your gf will still be riding the GP because you will not want to give the Honda up.. And before you think I am just being bias toward the Honda, lets just say I have a few friends with GP's...

    Def get the turbo.

    The lag is next to nothing.....

    had a friend who was convinced he'd take me because he had heard so much about the lag.

    He was SILENT after I not only beat him in top speed but I also beat him off the line and he never EVER got infront of me, even after three races!
    He was pissed the rest of the day!

    I agree the Lag is hardly there.
    I raced a GP1300R when I was stock from a dead stop ,and easily pulled 3 lengths on him ,and maintained it for maybe 100 yards.
    I have heard the GP1300R is faster up top ,but I guess we would have to race for a extended period for one to pass me.
    I guess what Im sayin is you might enjoy the Honda more if you go Turbo.
    Im at 226 hours with no problems.

    Macsboost module has been on for around 40 hours.

    I should fully disclose my experience, I had a macboost stage II at 17.5 psi and my valve keeper floated.

    Went with dual springs from the R12 and haven't had a problem since.

    Re: New to Honda

    Found out the turbo's have a low power setting so I think I got my GF on board for a turbo. I'm shooting for a GPS model. Just got to sell my GPR now................
