Thread: Noisy rear-end
08-14-2013, 10:57 AM #1
So I have a new-to-me '07 RXT with 120hrs on it, she runs PERFECTLY, and is 100% bone-stock. I've already upgraded the ceramic to SS washers, so I know my way around with tools.
There seems to be a weird metallic/rattling noise coming from the rear, right around the intake grate/impeller area, not sure if its normal, but my old STX never made such noises.
I've attached a video, I hope you can hear the noise clear enough, but I'm wondering if there's any other issues with these components/areas?

Sounds normal. That noise is the driveshaft rattle, normal when out of the water and no pressure on the pump.

Hope you changed the bearings in the s/c when you did the clutch washers.
Bearing failure can do 2k+ in damages.

Not yet, planning on ordering them pretty soon. Looks like I also gotta order the SC tools kit to install them? Ughhhh. I was able to install the washers w/o the tools.
Are they the ball bearings, or needle bearings? The needle bearings were an absolute PITA re-installing them individually w/ tweezers hahah, isn't there an easier way?

Both needles and balls It's easy to get them on without messing up with the new plastic sleeve they come in. Order a complete kit for the SC.
