    Oil Checking?

    I check the oil in my GPR every trip out. It's easy, I just look in the container and add as need be. What should be the frequency of checking the oil in my wifes RXP? I read somehwere it should be warmed up in order to get a good reading. Just didn't know if the 4 strokes burn oil like the 2 strokes. When I do need oil which oil should I be purchasing? Thanks for any input guys.

    Suthrn:

    If an RXP used oil like a GPR, there would be somethng seriously wrong with the RXP.


    Warm the oil up, take it out for a run, then check it. Should be between the bends........

    USe the same oil that you use when changing oil or BRP oil

    With the engine at operating temperature:

    Let it idle for 30 seconds
    Kill the engine and wait 30 seconds

    The oil should be halfway between the two bends on the stick.

    What if its just below the top bend after this? Still ok or not?

    I would suck some out. Over filled oil can cause loss of RPM's
