Bad sounding noise for my 05 rxp
I need some good places too start looking on my ski and figured you guys could help me out. I was ridding today about 35-40 mph and 5500-6000 rpm and all the sudden the it started to vibarate and make loose bearing or shaft noise, let off gas all good at idle speed. I nursed it back to the ramp and when I was close I ran it up the noise was gone but it seamed too viberate a Lil bit.top speed seemed too be the same motor sounds fine. Maybe sucked up sea weed??? Where is a good place too look at mechanically ? Thanx

Sounds like something is in the prop/pump.

How much was the rebuild kit? The noise mine made sounded like your pics look like. 5 min before I had my wife on the back and it had trouble taking off didn't want too get on plane. 5 min later the vib and noise started. The noise went away and most of the vibe.thanx

start by eliminating the obvious,
look at pump, prop, grate etc... if you see anything out of the normal, disassemble, it could be as simple as a stick-weed-plastic etc..
don't jump the gun and buy a pump rebuild kit until you know that the problem is,
when a prop gets dinged pretty good it is off balance and starts to vibrate, if it is real bad then it tears up the wear ring and you have no power,
check it all out and let us know what you find,

I had a plastic part stuck in the pump that causes a lot of cavitation and vibration and noise.
Pulled it out and all was good.
Check your pump.

I bought a whole new pump housing with bearings installed for about $500, my housing was pretty corroded. The rebuild kit is alot cheaper. Best to eliminate the obvious first before shelling out the dosh though.
