fxho 2006 water in oil
ok not a performance thread. posted due to high traffic area
just received for repair a 2006 fxho 270hrs whilst owner was on a recent big ride apparently his buddy noticed the ski starting to smoke, they stopped and checked oil tank it was full to the top with whipped cream engine runs nice so no major internal damage as yet.
has anyone experienced similar problem so as im not chasing my tail searching for the water leak.
have removed the tank/oil cooler and pressure tested it, no leaks detected to the oil side but the outer plates leaked water (separate issue but will clean and replace orings)
removed rocker cover and water feed pipe oring seemed to be sealing ok, next step removing head for inspection of gasket and obviously cracked head.
is there anywhere else these engines may rot or leak? previous experience with this platform proves it very reliable and trouble free.

I actually searched and as stated didn't find much I was going to blurt out some ideas with 270ish hours, burnt oil, water in oil I was going to say do a compression test as I didn't read one being done to rule on rings before the possible head gasket. Glad you found it. Maybe the next guy can PM you

thanks mate was just looking for some ideas other than the ordinary, most guys cut there teeth here on this model so thought someone would have atleast come across some oddball issue. anyway problem now solved. even mr i know everything about yamaha had nothing to add. i guess he just cant face the fact that stock yamahas do have their far share of fukups..

It could be a loose flux capacitor

Would be nice to pull it down and check the insides for damage or whatever else
