    Need info on engine alignment

    ok so I have 2 new 2013 gtr's, my last seadoo was a 06 rxp. I have a feeling that my skis might not be aligned properly. They are super noisy when you fire them up out of the water to clear the water out of the exhaust after riding. I dont ever rember my rxp ever making the same noises. IS this normal on newer skis? They seem to run fine in the water, one seems a tad rougher at idle then the other does. These only have 4 hours on them so far. Is there a thread or how to on here to check alignment?

    The noise your hearing when you fire them up out of the water is very normal.
    I haven't had to deal with engine alignment.
    Just watch your carbon seal area. If you see a lot of black dust forming in a line then more than likely your out of alignment.
    If no black line is forming your good to go..

    Great choice of skis.. the gtr is a rocket ship on the water..

    My GTR was out of whack from the factory, carbon seal was leaking around 38 hours. 30 Hours later same issues (carbon seal leaking), was way out of whack, had to shim and re-align now its perfect.

    Ok I'll check the carbon seals. It just sounds like they are chewing wear rings out of the water.

    Surfred how did you align your motor?
