    RXP-X 255 using oil

    I have a friend with a 2008 RXP-X that have started to use some oil enough to see the difference on the dipstick after a ride, the ski only have 75 hours on it so what do you guys belive is the reason its started using oil?

    Are you sure its using oil and not losing oil.
    Is it smoking white smoke??

    I've seen the rear seal at the shaft leak oil.
    Is he using the correct oil for the ski??

    PTO Seal is leaking while under power and they do not tend to leak while sitting. There is probably oil under the engine and bailer tubes coated in oil.

    order parts #46,47,48 R&R parts.
