    Can't seem to get correct oil level!


    Just finished 05 RXP rebuild, but cant get accurate oil level reading.
    It should hold about 4.5 liters, I put in 1 gallon(Seadoo Service Oil Kit)
    I do the procedure i the manual, but just cant get it right......

    Could this have to do with me using an 06 head (with 05 Rocker arm shaft)


    Thanks

    So your starting and letting idle on flat ground or in water for 30secs.
    Waiting a minimum of 30secs and then checking?

    I usually do the check 3times and avrage out the results. I also look at both sides of the dip stick.

    start the engine let it run for no more than 30 seconds.. (No water)

    let it sit for 10+ min.. then check oil level.. make sure ski is on a level surface and level on the trailer..

    YA! Its on a stand 100% level. ran on hose & without. Did all the procedures on manual
    & on GH. I used the Sea Doo service kit which comes with 1 gallon. I know there is plenty of
    oil, but when I let it sit, there's only about 10mm from the bottom of the stick.
    Maybe one of my oil pumps is bad???????
