    2012 rxp-x funny noise

    I have about 18 hours n my 12 x now and since the day I picked it up I noticed a grinding like weird sound coming from the pump I think. It sounds like mixing a hand full of roofing nails in your blender. I only hear it when you are on plane. When you are going slow its not there. Sounds like the carbon seal or a pump bearing but the dealer checked out both and they said its fine. I have no cavitation and up top its fine. I would think that after 18 hours of use it would have let go by now if it was something serious. Never the less; I do not like hat sound its making. It realy is not what I want to hear. My 12 rxtas260 has the same pump set-up and is as quiet as a new Lexus!!

    Does anybody here have that noise or is it just me.

    Pump bearing failure or that it's on its way out.

    Are you sure it's not the water on the bottom of the hull? I hear the same thing on mine and as you say it only does it on the plane. I'm certain this is what I'm hearing, seems further forward than the pump to me,

    +1, I think that's all your hearing.

    My 08x does the same thing, and it disappears when you turn...

    will check it out later today. I am gonna put the nose against the dock and give it some gas and see what I hear. maybee its just the water, I hope so.. But that is not a nice sound to be hearing when you are out there. To me it sounds like crap and I want to figure out what it is.

    Put a free flwing exhaust on it and it will go away. Like turning the radio up in the car.

    I just took mine out, at around 5500 to 6000 rpm the sounds the hull and pump make resemble what you are hearing, I wouldn't worry about it unless performance gets worse, this ski makes more noise than any other ski I ever owned
