    Whats that clattering noise?

    When ever I flush my ski there is a horrendous clattering noise but when it revs up the noise disappears!? It sounds as if its metallic and comes from the pump/prop area? I seem to remember the same sound from an old kawasaki stand up I had many moons ago but it was a shed so didn't really worry about it back then

    Any ideas what it is?

    All seadoo's make that noise when you're running them out of the water on the hose. It's the prop inside the wear ring.

    Thanks. Puts my mind at rest. Had to admit at first it had me worried as it sounds like somethings about to drop off!

    If its the prop rattling around in the wear ring does that not damage the plastic ring?

    Its actually drive shaft deflection in the splines of prop and driveshaft.....its normal, grease your splines on drive shaft with good marine grease and it will stop
