    1997 GP1200 top speed 52 mph GPS

    Hi
    New to me gp1200. Put a new engine. Ran it about 3-4 hours before taking it up to top speed. It's only doing about 52 mph. There are no working gauges but RPM sound right by the ear. A little wobble at start (propeller maybe?) I am not very good at working on these things and have very limited knowledge. Was hoping someone could give me a starter list of things to do to improve the speed?

    Thanks!!

    52mph is definitely slow for this particular ski.

    My 1997 topped out at 57.5 on GPS completely stock. I was hoping for a little better but that was all she had in her.

    More recently, I've lost another 2mph because of something that I can't figure out. Something is going on with the hull that's scrubbing off speed. My ski has about 130 hrs on it and the engine runs like brand new. Very responsive and powerful. Too bad I can't figure out what's going on with my hull.

    Are you using the trim on the left handle? . If so then check the impeller for damage. You can also adjust the sponsons to get the nose up more.
