Metal Rattling noise.
Hi guys, just curious to know what is the metal rattling sound that sounds like it comes from the jet pump/ impella area? There isn't a problem it's just I'm curious.
You don't hear it when placed in water it's only on the trailer. My last ski had the same sound and I was watching a YouTube video on a new 2013 ski on a guy that was showing his radio install and he started his ski up and it also has this metal rattling sound.
I just wanted to know what it was that was all

Well, that's the first item I would check. The anode is there as a sacrificial metal for saltwater use.

Just about every Seadoo ever made Has always made this rattling sound. It's very common for the Jet pump to make some kind of weird noise when the ski is out of the water. I would check the jet pump out just to make sure that the prop is nice and tight and that there's no play between the impeller and the jet pump assembly.

The noise you are hearing is the drive shaft and impeller clanking together. With the key off, lie on your back and reach into the tunnel area and move the impeller and or drive shaft back and forth quickly and you should hear the same metal on metal clanking sound. You obviously don't hear this when in the water.
As Bob said, the anode could also be loose and or the pump bearings can make a lot of noise if they are shot.

I think all is fine though as its not overly noisey it's just about the same as what I've heard on my last ski and others.
I was just curious to know what it as exactly, but it won't hurt to try and check s few things when I come to winterise it this weekend
thanks guys thats cleared up a few things
