    Is it normal?

    I have noticed this ever since I have had my ski. 05 f12x. 6 hours. I have now ridden it 3 times. When I start the ski in the water it makes a "clunk" sound. It seems to run great. Do all you Honda owners notice this on start up or do you think something is wrong?

    never heard that, I hear the noise out the water that bothers me, sounds like the prop or somthing, so I don't know. The dealer services my pump 1x a year changes all the seals. I usually change props, thats why, I just let them do it, the pump is important, so I let them do it so if somthing happens, its on them.

    if you don't pack the prop splines with grease, it will clunk around. Most people don't know this.

    i recommend taking the pump off 2X a every year. At the start and mid season. Check the grease/prop and bearings. the prop tool is about $9 and with a bench vise and Torque wrench, no other special tools are needed.

    It takes about 1 hour max to do this, (i can in about 25 minutes)

    Hey Nitro, where do you usually get a prop tool? Do you recommend I purchase it straight from the dealer? or online?

    i buy them from a supplier 12 at a time and include one with all the Stg1 kits because there is a prop. Soo, i can't really tell you.

    Any of the PWC supplies should have them (Riva,Parker Yamaha etc)

    Richard may have them also PM him.. way2fast [email protected]
