    Have you seen this service bulletin:

    The oil is mostly likely coming from the the pto shaft seal - not uncommon.

    I think you need to find a new dealer. I had problems with my nearist dealer, so I found another one. I now have to drive 2hrs vs 40 min, but I dont care. The new dealer is worth it.

    okay how much of a pain in the ass is it to do the pto shaft seal???? Is that the same thing as a rear main seal i think they are referring to they want damn near 400 dollars just to tear the damn thing down to TRY and see whats wrong with it.....what causes that....and yes i have seen the service bullentin thanks they have been working on that shock since brand new also moved it and everything else......reallly starting to get on my damn nerves thats for damn sure

    Its not too bad to replace the PTO seal, but you have to remove the jet pump and pull the driveshaft and the SC (for clearance to get at clamps). But first I would check to see if that is the leak ... BEFORE you go out again, take a rag and thoroughly dry off the PTO seal and driveshaft. Then go for a ride, shut off the ski and reach in and feel the DS and PTO bottom ... if that is where the leak is, it will be oily again. If it is not oily, your leak is elsewhere.

    Sometimes if someone has pulled the DS before, and it was a bit sticky coming out, the bearing halves in the PTO will pull out a bit ... you can carefully bump them back in correct relationship, clean the rubber PTO boot very well, reinstall the bearing in the PTO seal, install and clamp correctly, and possibly be all set.
