    FZR, low noise at idle?

    Hi!

    I just bought a FZR with 28 hours on it;

    At idle out of water I can hear the impeller spinning, its just a low noise but its there.

    In water I cant hear the impeller, but if I listen carefully, I hear some noise from the front of the engine, it sounds like you can hear the shaft spinning. At higher rpmīs I just hear the engine.

    Is this normal? I would rather like to just hear the engine both in and out of water?

    the noise at idle in the front is normal you are hearing the super charger clutch.

    You are very welcome, When you do not hear that noise then you need to worry. Also when you shut the ski off you should hear the super charger free wheel for about 5 seconds on average.

    The impeller noise, is that normal?

    My earlier skies engines was very loud, so I didnt notice any noise from the impeller, but the FZR runs like a sewing-machine
