First check your compression.
Take a look in the how-to section,you will find all specs and manuals over there,about pulling the head,and retorque the bolts.
You can pull your head ,and leave your engine in the hull.
You don't need to suck your oil out,you must however drain your coolant on the rideplate,there is small drainage bolt over there.

Have you pulled the head off before? Are the two bolts inside the cylinder head in front of the timing chain installed?

I'd take the head cover off first and checkthe tension of the head studs and those two little screws down below the cam sproket - maybe the oil is coming from a loose sensor cover or the tops seal?

i retensioned the head to check and the two bolts inside the timing cover are there and also tight...
is the riva gasket the way to go, or rotax, or oem gasket??
same deal with the head bolts what is everyone using??

Oem gasket and headbolts are fine,some guys are running 88 mph (140 km),with it no issues what so ever.

Just out of curiosity here. But is this Head Gasket thinner, or OEM spec thickness?
