    Angry I need lot's o help.....

    Hello every one,
    I have a 04 RXP, 80 hours, Riva air and grate, Stell s/c washers. I have put on 12 hours this year. I have owned since new.

    My Problem.

    I went jet ski camping 2 weeks ago. On the last day at Idle I could hear a knocking and slight grinding sound. I went back to camp and let it cool down and restarted with seat off. Same sound coming from rear top of engine, intermitantly only at idle.
    I rode it easy and trailered it. When home I checked S/C, Oil, all ok. I and went out this last Friday. Same sound and with in 2 minutes at the marina it got way worse very bad knocking and grinding sound to the point that it would hardly run. I shut it down and took it home.

    Any thoughts?? could it be the top end?


    I did run 2 tanks of Regular UNL when camping. We ran out of Super. could this have caused a problem? It ran great all 3 days until I shut it down after I heard the strange sounds.


    Thanks for you input. I could really use the help.

    Chris

    Sounds like the problem alot of '04's have had lately. Dropped a valve. Pull your plugs, bet one is chewed up. Threads to read.

    I think if that was a dropped valve it wouldnt run at all but i could be wrong. My guess is Flywheel bolts or sc bearings went. Either way youve got some pretty serious problems guy....

    Riding it more probably didnt help much.

    Time to start looking for busted parts.

    It wont run if the flywheel bolts go, the starter has nothing to turn.

    Thanks for the input. I will check all these things. I know I should have checked deeper before water testing.

    Any other thoughts?

    Yes---stop starting it and riding it until you get it fixed bro.
    You're probably only making it worse and the repairs can be $$$$.
