    I've seen it before, depends how serious though... Just a couple and I wouldn't worry..

    But if its frothy, then I would wait for the experts to chime in!

    IMO either GIO or coolant in the oil.

    do you have an aftermarket air intake? if so if you have a catch can installed could be that your catch can is mounted too high, the hose should be leveled with the engine.

    or you have coolant in the oil, has your coolant level dropped?, mark a line on the tank, ride it hard for a bit come back let it cool and compare.

    Thanks i was thinking coolant in the oil.
    I have not taking this ski out yet.
    Project.
    ski has never touched water.
    But i do have the air filter completely off and nothing for a catch can yet.
    Just fired it up to make sure its all good.
    Ski sat for 3 years and this is the first oil change. 0 hours.
    It fires up perfect.
    Then sounds rich and plugs i think get fowled out.
    I cant rev it past 3000. Sounds like fowling.
    Then i see air bubbles on dip stick.
    P-1517 P0546...
    I know i have to take to dealer and get reset.
    Also i am still missing P-0546 sensor on water box.
    Cant remember were i put it...lol
    I have a straight through exhaust not fully exiting.
    Waiting for Riva exit tip.
    Oh stock IC.

    Thanks again.

    What does the oil look like? If it looks like chocolate milk, then you have a problem. If it is a normal oil color, then you're fine. I would think if it is overfilled, you'd also be more likely to get bubbles. If you did the oil change on the trailer, was the ski level?

    Oil looks good for being 3 years old oil.

    New oil in.
    Its a little over the high bar on the dip stick. Ill take a little out.

    Ski is on a good stand level.

    Thanks guys so far for the help.

    if its mixed I believe its normal, mine goes down but not significantly, maybe a few millimeters after many hours of riding.

    I run a mix of about 30% antifreeze and 70% distilled water.
    just to keep the water pump seals and everything else lubricated.

    mine has gone down 1-2 fingers after 7 hours of riding, 3 of which were very hard. so i guess it is normal !

    i see some minor bubbles as well in the dip stick but the colos looks fine. oil is new(7 hours)

    x2 .

    Look at the color of the oil if you are concerned water is in there.
