    loud clanking noise only when im flushing ski

    i have a 2000 yamaha xl1200 and in the water it runs great, but when im done riding and get it home to flush it , while flusing i hear a pretty noticable clanking noise, but when the ski is in the water i dont hear it... someone told me it was common and that the pump was making that noise.. if thats true does the pump need greasing? please help because im looking to sell this spring and want to take care of that before i sell.. THANKS

    That is the pump making that noise they all do it. I would'nt worry about it as long as it runs fine in the water

    It is the impeller in the pump bumping the pump housing/impeller liner. Out of the water most skis do it to some extent, some are worse than others.

    Its most likely the prop hitting the liner as most have stated but its not supposed to happen. The liner is Stainless and its pressed into an aluminum housing. Corrosoin gets between the two and causes the liner to swell and hit the prop.

    Since I've gone to the solid stainless liner and housing there is no more noise and and clearence stays tight. If your riding in salt water alot I highly recommend this.
