    Re: Love my new GP1800, but it's no Honda

    We have a blow off valve kit that really helps reduce stress on the one way clutch. The supercharger is the most glaring weakest link on these machines.

    Re: Love my new GP1800, but it's no Honda

    So, after about 22 hours on the GP, I can also add the paint is weak and there is an apparent problem with some grate fasteners that are causing leaking. I have a leak in mine, and have yet to diagnose - will have to use a snake camera. For those interested in the GP, I would hold off until Yamaha fixes the leaking issue and hopefully upgrades the dash. The leak appears to be widespread. Bummer.

    I purchased the Candor GPS plug-in. It works well, but will not register speed at idle. It takes 30 seconds to receive and lock the satellites, then you are good all day.

    Are you going to start offering items for the GP? I was always very happy with the MacsBoost equipment I added to my F-12X.

    Yamaha has always had paint issues, as well as fit and finish issues, however i would still own one over a honda. How many of you guys have had to replace the turbo on the honda $$$$$ ?? How many years did honda make pwc before they threw in the towel. I raced for 15 years and dont recall anybody racing a honda. There is reason honda and polaris went out of buisness.

    I've got 2 f12x's. Knock on wood, haven't replaced anything yet. Pushing 300 hours on both. Honda didn't go out of business. They stopped producing when the economy went for a terd. My belief is that many, if not all ski companies would be hurting if they had to rely on people paying cash for a toy. There's a hell of a lot of Honda skis out there that are still running strong and upwards of 15 years old.

    It's worth noting at 40 hours my GP now leaks water and oil. Water from the pump area and oil from the starboard side of the engine. My F-12X hit 240 hours and remains trouble free.
