    94 xl 700 rattle

    finaly got my xl700 running found it had the wrong carbs on it that caused the runaway. bought 3 sets on fleabay till i got a good set. did the complete rebuild myself. I will never again buy a non running ex rental ski thank god it was cheap.the guy i got it from put a new rb engine in it but could never get it running when i got it it ran away on me and seized. the ski runs great now with just me on it it is scary fast enough. heres the problem it runs smooth in the water but when i flush it out of the water it has a rattle type vibration like a loose shopping cart wheel. the pump clearances all look even could this be a bearing issue?

    Well, without hearing it it's almost impossible to diagnose a motor noise. However, 2-strokes don't really like to idle anyway....even less when they don't have any resistance on the motor sitting on the trailer.
    If it's running fine in the water and everything seems to check out then you are more than likely fine. Just pay attention to it for any changes that may be a sign of another problem.
    Good Luck
