    Kawasaki Ultra310LX strange noise


    I started the jet ski for the first time and i hear ringing near the propeller ( jet ski out of water with connected water to engine hose). Is it normal?
    Can a propeller make such noise when not submerged in water?

    Welcome aboard, michalez!

    It's perfectly normal. Think of the impeller as a bell on the end of the driveshaft. Every time the engine fires, there is a pulsation in the driveshaft, which is like hitting it with a hammer. Also, play in the driveshaft splines contributes to the noise. As long as you're not hearing strange noises when it's in the water, it should be OK.
