    It is the driveline and the impeller splines.

    No big deal.

    Nearly every 2 stroke seadoo makes that noise.

    For some models SeaDoo introduced an anti rattle pump cone.

    Other factors that make it worse a worn out or missing driveline
    dampers (bumpers), a leaking pto/driveline boot.

    The pto/driveline boot should always have the oem clamps. Zip
    ties are insufficient because they allow grease pressure to escape.
    The grease pushes the drive shaft back into the impeller when the
    boot properly filled with grease.

    It will also prevent cavitation if your ski has the mechanical
    driveline seal.

    Look at the pdf, and read my notes that I added to the pdf. I highlighted
    the bumpers and other important parts.


    Your hose clamps will work, except the driveline clamp will eventually
    puncture the boot. That is why the oem clamp is better.

    A set of side cutters can be used to install and remove the clamp.

    I also highlighted the impeller boot. It reduces noise and helps the
    impeller splines retain grease. But they can make installing the pump
    very difficult and time consuming.

    My 92 XP 587 rattles too , Its supposed too , what i just did a few weeks ago while rebuilding the pump is put on a anti rattle kit from OSD Marine and what a difference it made , well worth $30 something bucks not to hear that noise likes its coming apart , plus the larger cone holds more oil , Look up www.osdmarine.com , Great site and good people to deal with.

    Dont use gear clamp on driveline...it will set off a vibration. Use a zip tie.
