    2008 RXP-X little bit of oil spray on top of engine cover

    Hey Guys,

    Picked up my 2008 RXPX on the weekend, it has 54 hours on it and I had it inspected before I purchased it and it was said to be immaculate and in good running order.

    After taking it for a spin for about 4 hours this weekend, I noticed there to be a little bit of oil spray on the engine cover of the motor. Is this normal? Has anyone here had the same thing happen to their rxp/x?

    On A side note, the ski is running perfectly and is a whole heap of fun.

    I am new to the whole world of Jet Skis, and would greatly appreciate the help.

    Attached is a image that I got from the net outlining where the spray was, I didnt get a chance to take an image of mine.

    Welcome to the Hulk.

    Check your oil cap and oil level it should be 1/2 way between the two bends with the craft level after a short idle.
    Also check the breather hose off the valve cover that attaches to the intake system.

    pull the cover, check your coil packs, spark plugs and spark plug tube for oil
