too much oil!
On my 2007 RXP, I have been adding Valvoline 10w 40 oil EVERY RIDE. There are no signs of excess smoke from exhaust. The x-charger w/ ET 137 wheel was rebuilt last season. Ski throwing off oil code towards the end of my last 3 rides.
I check oil before each ride, oil is 1/2 way up dipstick. At the end of 3 recent rides, oil barely showing on dipstick.
I do ride the ski pretty hard. Ski has approx. 165 hours on motor. 40 of them with the 137 wheel, stock ECU for all the hours. I am hoping it is not time for a bottom end rebuild.
Anyone else experience this?

Are you running a catch can or stock intake? Stock closed loop cooling or open loop?
Pull your hoses and checking for oil.

I noticed some oil near charger housing. I had a small issue with the catch can in the first 2 rides of season with bracket breaking and some oil/gas/water getting released into the bay. That issue has since been resolved. Stock closed loop cooling.

How's the catch can looking now? Has the dipstick been blowing out by any chance?
It could easily be the supercharger seal as ranger said. Your hoses, intercooler and intake manifold will be filled and need to be flushed. Replace with the Viton seal if that's the case.

Even if charger was rebuilt last year? Do seals go that quickly?

Ive heard about seals leaking within 3-5 hours run time.

My symptoms are very very similar..I am hoping mine is an issue with a part i have ordered which is the Riva thermostat but my boat has open loop. But every ride my ski needs at least a quart of oil...If you figure it out please let me know also. Thanks
