    2 questions re: 2000 ZXi 1100

    Hi all, I've noticed a faint howl that seems to be coming from the pump at low RPM (plane speed). It's very difficult to hear over the engine but I've noticed it multiple times. The impeller is warm to the touch after riding (ski still in the water). Is this normal? I'm wondering if it may be pump bearing related.

    Also, if I do the air sensor mod will the carbs need any tweaking?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I've had a bad pump make a low pitched rattling noise. I've never felt the impeller after riding, but I'm sure that it would bet pretty warm if it's contacting the housing.

    Can you think of anything that would cause the howl I mentioned?

    I would guess the howl is a bad bearing, perhaps the bearing in the driveshaft holder where the driveshaft passes through the hull. The bearing may be bad and the shaft might be turning in the bearing.
