    could it be a factor

    is it generally excepted that 07 shafts are less likely to leak than 08s,if they were both running RR ECUs and or after market wheels for instance.Do higher rpms count,or could it be a combination.My dealer says run the oil on the lowish side,bout halfway up the stick,could it be a factor that..modded skis running low oil levels, higer rpms, makes the oil hotter thiner and be part of the reason it gets past the seal?? i m curious

    modified ski's usually have some fuel dilution of the oil which makes it thinner, change it at minimum every 25 hours if this is happening with your ski.

    no not happening at the moment,i did 70 plus hours on 07 shaft,my buds got 160+...no probs,yet the 08s are being plugged,standard,modded,you here it alot,just trying to find out why this happens...i plugged my RUDE1 AND ITS FINE,but it leaked after a couple of hours before it got plugged.The extra lube hole seems a good idea in princaple,but is it ? im just curious why it seems more prolific on 08s,and trying to under stand it.
