Oil in the hull
O.K. so I took the FZR out today and met up with a couple of friend today for a ride.I took it of the trailer and rode for an huor or so and then swapped skis to ride my Sea-Doo. When I popped open the seat I saw oil covering some of the exhaust manifold, breather valve, and very light oil in the hull, but the ski runs good, supercharger is working just fine so i'm baffled because I don't know where the oil is. Does anyone know of a similar problem or situation?

Oil filter leaking? We had that happen once. Did you change it recently?

No It's been on there since I bought the ski a few months ago, but I was going to change it next weekend.

Isit possible that it would get all over the areas that I mentioned? there was probably a 5 ounces of oil or so total.Itlooks like a decent amount. I'm wonderiing if the oil is leaking where the oil line comes off the oil box then to the cooler?

It could be something else, just throwing out ideas. When ours leaked it sprayed a good portion of the left side of the engine. Exhaust manifold, that side of the hull, etc. We swapped filter and all well since. Make sure it doesn't leave the o-ring behind from the old one if you do swap filters.

possible the cam plug has came out forcing way too much oil into the valve cover/ crankcase breather system ? Tommy Jordan

o.k. I found out the problem, the oil is coming from the breather tube that I installed and 5-6 ounces came from it.Shit I wonder what is causing that.
