Thread: water in oil

    water in oil

    took my 08 ultra250x on vacation just to find out that it had water in the oil. changed the oil 4 different times and it seems to be filling back with water quickly. just got back and havent had a chance to do a compression test. it performed perfectly, just a lot of oil. any ideas where to start? thanks

    did compression test and all cylinders are fine. ive seen people post about exhaust leaking and intercooler. how do i tell the difference?

    one other thing, so far after the compression test i cant get the ski to crank up. possibly the coil wires are burnt?

    Yep prob cracked head. Don't let the water sit in there. Get it out and. And get new oil in it. So your 1500$ repair does not turn into a 5000$ repair

    No they don't sell crate motors. You have to piece them together.

    Well is the oil milky or not ? If milky its water. If not then yes GIO is a common problem and requires regular 10 hr oil changes.There is no real fix for GIO
