    Rattle from back of RXP

    I can't figure out what this rattle is... when in the water it sounds like it is coming from the very back deck, like right where the SEADOO words are on the padding. When out of the water I can't hear it, and with the seat off in the water I can't locate it or hear it.

    Is this normal? stainless wear ring and Skat bearing carrier. Any ideas??

    on our RXP-X a rattle similar to what you describe was caused by the seat latch rattling. We tightened (shortened) the catch post for the latch at the back of the seat and the sound went away. May be different though...

    Maybe its the dead hooker in the trunk. Always giving me problems. haha

    I had the same thing but it seemed to be coming from the front. Messed with the seat and it went away. Hopefully its something as easy as a seat adjustment.

    Do you use the clamps on either side of the seat base? They hold the base of the seat to the hull. One of them might not be tightened down and rattling.

    Just a thought.

    Not sure about what clamps you're talking about... but either way it does not appear to be the seat. Hmmmm....

    It sounds like it's coming from the pump tunnel area/thru hull area. mostly able to hear when in the water on the trailer at just above idle..

    Bilge pipes rattling against the deck. It happened to me... I zip-tied then out of the way.
