    you are fine. how do you know its a qt long? where is it on stick? I would run a ski around top bend way before i would around bottom bend on stick, but learned the hard way. yes there is speed and rpm to gain lower on oil but if your running hard play at your on risk. sorry to hijack but I just warn those to be careful at how low you run your oil with highly moded ski run long wot runs.

    It is about 3/4 above the top bend.... 3/4 being measures as 3/4 between bottom and top bend. So if u take he 2 bends and add 3/4 of the 2 bends above the top bend and that's what I got.

    Stuck at 7400 rpms supposed to be at 8300!!!!

    Take off your oil filler cap and capsize ur ski, that will get that quart out Alternatively you could keep dipping the dipstick in and wiping it clean with a rag.. after 24 hours or so u should get 1/2 qt out

    I had no idea you lost that many revs from over filling the oil, are you sure thats the only thing restricting the rpms?
