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?
