    Clanking noise normal?

    Hi all, pardon what I hope is just a stupid noob question, but I had to ask.

    I just got my new 250X and decided to put it on the hose and fire it up in the driveway. There is a fairly loud clanking kinda noise that seems to be coming from the pump, loudest when you listen by the intake grate. It sounds like the impeller is smacking something. I haven't had a jetski since my Kawi 750 SS, so it's been a while, and I don't remember if this is a normal noise.

    Thanks for any info.

    if it's anything like all other's thats normal. just the driveshaft splines in the impeller. makes noise since it has no load on the prop.

    I get that sound too

    I get that sound too on the hose, kind of clanking. Ski seems
    very normal in water, so haven't worried about it.

    Perfectly normal, makes it sound almost like a two-stroke out of the water.
