High Elevation and RPM
I have an FX HO 160 that I always have run at sea level. For the first time I rode in 6500 elevation and ofcourse the thing did not have much power compared. Take offs were not anything like sea level. I also noticed my top rpm is about 8700 maybe 9000 where I always get 10300. I assume this is normal.
I checked my oil after few minutes of riding and then after end of the day both times hot. I thought my oil level has increased by 4 oz and it smells like its got some gasoline but I am not sure. Is this possible at all? How do I exactly say if its got gas?
