    VX & FX engine oil leak after sitting for the winter

    Anyone ever have a VX or FX have a massive oil leak after sitting the off season? I have 2 skis with this issue and im looking for a place to start.

    I dont think so. They both have been serviced with new filters in the fall and haven't been started yet. The oil leaked while they were sitting. I'll check though.

    I once had an experience with a dealer who spilled some fluids (oil and antifreeze) inside the hull. Check the oil levels on the dipstick to check. It possibly could be that but obviously I would look around for anyhting more serious.

    I wish it could be that easy but it is in fact oil from the engine. As far as i know im the only one to have ever turned a wrench on the VX and would never leave and oil in there if i spilled it. Not sure who has been in the FX. I was just floored about the fact that i had two skis from different owners coming in with the same problem. Thank god people pull their seats and look before they jump on and take off.
