I have a 05 Honda R12x with about 30 hours I bought last July as a left over. Changed the oil in August and rode it a few times before winterizing it with no problems. After unwinterizing it this year I started it up and it was making a metal to metal grinding noise. Since it is still under warranty, I took it to Sport Honda in Metuchen, NJ and was told that there was 4 quarts too much oil in it and the engine needs to be rebuilt. This is impossible because the waverunner only holds 5qts and there is no way we only pumped out 1 qt.

Anyone have a similar problem? I'd like to take it to somewhere else because I haven't heard anything good about this dealership. If you have any advice on what could be wrong or where to take it, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks.

did you winterize the ski yourself? Left a pocket of water in engine and it froze and popped somthing? It is hard to beleive that too much oil caused the problem. Where is the grinding noise comming from? engine compartment? Hi or low or more from the back of the ski? Could be possible you left a tool or somthing laying in the ski rubbing against the drive shaft to the pump?
