    05 STX-900 Smoking Question

    I bought this 05 STX-900 about a month ago, yesterday was the 4th time I've taken it out and its been running great. I did notice that it seems to be smoking a good bit and I'm not sure if it was this bad when I got it. I've recorded a video of how it looks when hooked up to a hose. If you have any recommendations please shoot.

    2-strokes smoke. They smoke more on the trailer because then engine is unloaded and, therefore, runs rich.

    Synthetic oils tend to smoke less than petroleum based oils. You might try other brands.
