Loosing oil on a stock 2006 RXP
I have been loosing oil at about 1/2 quart per tank of gas on my RXP. It has been doing this since I bought it used 1.5 years ago.(I did not find this issue till after buying) I have verified that I am not overfilling the oil (Checking it after riding till warm and idling for 30 seconds). The previous owner had the SC fail and installed a new stock one with the new washers. I installed a new viton seal without seeing any change. I do notice some oil that comes out with the water when I start it up on the trailer to push the water out after riding. Any ideas where to look next?

The oil slick makes me think you are having a leak exiting the exhaust side so that could be from valve stem seals, valve guides or rings. How many hours? Think about doing both a compression test and leak down test.
Are your intake hoses oily on the inside? Could be a supercharger seal, or even a bad TOPS valve recirculating oil back into the intake hose.

Internal oil cusumption valve guide seals,rings or blow by. Does the ski smoke at all blueish/white

The comps are good across cylinders and I do not ever see any smoke outside what I think is normal witch is about none and just white. When I installed the Viton SC ring there was a little residual oil in the pipes. It has just over 100 hrs now. I will have to check the other items listed. Thanks

My Comps are 140/155/155 on a cold engine. There is no oil seen in the hull only coming out when running and flushing so I think it must be going through the exhaust or cooling loop.

You need to do a leak down test. Since you have done everything else.
