    oil-fouling

    I picked up my second 96 sl 780 and the mag cylinder is oil fouling after about 3 or 4 hours of riding hard. Comp is good, spark strong and otherwise appears to run great. I have corrected the problem by adjusting the low speed screw. My question is...the spec states the starting point for the low speed is 3/4 out, I have it at 1/2 out. Is this acceptable or does this indicate another issue? Thes are a blast to ride! Not to big, and really quick machines. Thanks in advance.

    I would think something else is amiss.

    What spark plugs are in the ski?

    Are you using premix or the oil injection?

    BPR8es I think....or BPR9es pretty sure it is the 8es
    I am using the oil injection, have thought about eliminating and going pre-mix

    Make sure you're using the BPR8ES plugs. The 9's are actually a cooler plug and may not be burning off the oil.

    Injection shouldn'r be a problem, unless you didn't install the oil pump linkage correctly. Then the pump would run full flow as a type of safety default feature.
