    Oil Light 05' RXT-NEED HELP!

    Sorry to ask this again but i took the ski to the dealership because i was getting the oil warning light and it would go into limp mode x<3500 Rpm and it would not throw any codes so the dealer just did the seasonal service and said that it was fixed because you dont get the warning until you hit 5,000 rpm and they didnt want to rev it without load on the trailer so long story short i get home throw it in the water and go out for a ride, then the oil warning came up right as i was getting on a plane. i have replaced the two oil sensors in the front and rear on the engine and that did not seem to do the trick, what is next. i am running 13/18 solas prop, rr supercharger with spacer and 42s, and freeflow. this all started after the splines on the drive shaft went bad, a loose bolt on the pump. after that i upgraded the supercharger and replace the shaft and impellor then the starter failed before i could test it, then i replaced the starter and really confused about how i should proceed. Please help, i am only 17 and really want to get my rxt working again.

    Put a gauge on it to verify your oil pressure.

    Maybe the piston value in the PTO cover is stuck

    check the front oil pressure plug to make sure its on the right way, you can plug it in backwards and it will go into limp mode

    the clip is faceing the engine, which i beleive is the correct way. would someone be so kinds to direct me to a place where i can buy one, the thread and the instructions. You thread it onto the rear oil pressure sensor after you take it out, what pressures should i be looking for? thanks so much for your speedy replys, it is much apreciated.

    Yes, no codes at displayed that is why the dealer did not fix anything, on the dess/seadoo computer tool. I just mean what is the process, screw the gaige in and let it idel or put in the water on the trailer, etc.

    Is there anyway to check this without tearing down the engine, can you remove the piston cover without puting a mew gasket on or something like that?

    i think you can tee into the oil pressure switch and check at idle and i think the manual calls for the ops to be grounded to the engine block. pressure at idle should be 65-94psi cold and 58-72psi between 4000-7500rpm

    Are you losing oil?

    Can you take a picture of your engine compartment so we can get an idea of the quality or maintenance that this thing has lived through? I've seen multiple skis with corrosion in the wires. You can usually tell when the wire is not flexible.
