    The Vx was my first ski and a common problem with these skis is oil overfill .. did you have an oil change lately? if so most likely to much oil.

    does the oil go from the oil pan to the air filter when it is running or just sitting. Will it mess up the engine

    I'm not sure what you mean from the oil pan but if there is to much oil in there you will need to suck it out or you will have to replace your air filter.

    I can't answer that since I don't remember exactly and maybe someone else will jump in here and help you with that, but my question to you is did you change your oil and overfill or did the dealer do the oil change?

    if there was too much oil in the jetski would it suck all the oil into the air filter or just some of it.

    the problem that i'm having is where the oil goes was bone dry so we put oil in it today and started to leak out of the box where the air filter goes.

    OK I KNOW WHAT YOUR PROBLEM IS NOW... the oil was not bone dry and the reason why it looked like it was is because the yamaha MR1 motor is a dry sump set up and thats why it looked dry..You have overfilled your ski with oil and now you need to suck out the excess oil and replace you air filter ASAP
