    05 Stx-12F steam

    This may be a dumb question but this is my first jetski...is it normal to see some steam coming out of the exhaust and rising in the air when the ski is in the water running? Ive noticed some other skis around the docks and ive seen some put out white smoke but havent noticed any other ski have occasional steam come from the exhaust.

    No. And it's not a dumb question. Does it spray water when you rev it up? Sounds like a blockage in the cooling system. There have been other similar posts in the last week or so, take a look.

    yes steam from the EXHAUST is normal...……… if no warning alarms happen and when under way you have water coming out the Pisser / tell tail water spout on the side of the ski you are good, that water can spit and spurt steam after a hard ride then coming back to idle.... but typically its will just be HOT water temp on your finger.

    Sorry, I guess I read too quickly. I thought you had steam coming out the pisser. Yes, exhaust is normal.
