    Are Hondas noisy?

    I just picked up a Honda Aquatrax R-12X today as a second ski and it seems to run pretty good, 61.4 on GPS with full tank of fuel, etc.

    My question is this, are they noisy running skis? Meaning, I hear a noise coming from the rear like a rattle in the drivetrain, but it runs strong and consistent. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

    If it rattling out of the water, it is OK, just the necessary slack in the male/female shaft splines. If there is pump noise in the water, I would pull the cone off the pump and check it for water in the bearings.

    Mine does the exact same thing. I didn't think anything of it because the PO stated that it had done it since new and it only had 33 hours when i bought it. I'm guessing i need to pull the cone off also? Will i need to repack some bearings or something of that nature? I've never torn into the pump, but will be when i install a prop in the future. i guess now is the time to learn.
