    How much play in damper coupling

    Hi all, first up, hats off to a sensational forum, this is the first time l've had to post, the wealth of information on here is second to none. As a backyard mechanic I've never had to take any of my skis to a shop thanks to you guys. Anyway, I have bought the kids a FXHO 160 to have some fun with, in particular we have just got a Watobard flying set up from the USA, its sensational. I have noticed the rubber damper on the motor coupling has a bit of play in it, you can grab both sides and rock it about 1/16" not a lot but just wondering if this is acceptable?? Or should they be snug with no play at all? The ski runs fine but is a bit rattley at idle could this be the culprit, cheers from down under

    rattling noise is coming from the gear reduction located in rear casing of the engine, they all do that more or less. even a lot of play in coupling wont effect anything, dont worry about it. you can reduce rattling noise by playing a little with synchronizing screws located between intake butterflies , try to make idle as smooth as possible and noise will go away
