    Help!!2006 Kawasaki stx 12f oil out of exhaust

    Help, went riding the other day less than 10 min in the water started smoking real bad out the exhaust burning oil and oil coming out of exhaust. I immediately shut it off and checked for obvious leaks in the engine compartment none were found. Checked oil berly on the tip of dip stick. I will be doing a compression test tomorrow. Just doesn't make any sense why it would all of a sudden lose power and start burning/leaking oil. Any obvious things to check? Btw 87hrs 2006 Kawasaki stx12f

    Are you sure it is not just the fogging oil? Well if you had it winterized.

    Not fogging oil... Didn't do the winteriziing... I've been looking at a lotta post and seen were piston detonation was an issue with Kawasaki stx's

    low oil level and lots of smoke=broken piston ring(s)(?) ( 80%)

    cooling system may have been compromised ( 20%)

    hmm battery dead..no oil in the hull?

    You more than likely cracked # 1 piston. Look at your ECU and let us know thee last 2 numbers on it.
    Let us know what has happened for sure though. I could be wrong. If I am not, I may have what you need.
    Mine did the same thing and has ran great ever since repaired, about 140 hours ago.

    Ok, still couldn't do a comp test... Battery not charging.... The last 4 on ecu is 3732 on the top numbers and last 4 on bottom numbers are 8071

    Ok, had a loose wire on battery... #[email protected] #[email protected] #[email protected] #[email protected]
    So I'm guessing it needs new rings? Ugh
    Any help with parts would be freakin awesome!!!
    Thnx ahead of time for the patience/help
