    Ultra 260 help!

    Hey you kawi guys i got a good buddy of mine with an 09 ultra 260 with 120 hours. He noticed last season that he was starting to white smoke a bit form the exhaust. It got a lil worse then kinda just stayed the way it was and its still that way i actually ran into him on the lake on Sunday. He said he did a compression check and it was good. Hes not noticing any loss in power/performance. But he did loose almost an entire quart of oil by the end of last season's riding. I thinking supercharger seal of some sorts??? I dont know jack about these Ultras i just know my Seadoo so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    just got a slight white smoke from the exhaust. slowly burning oil. Is this common on high hour ultras? are there certain things that are usually the culprit so to say? Compression was fine, ski is running fine. Just burning oil somewhere i guess so lookin for some advice on where to start.

    Thats not high hrs. Are you 100% sure its smoke and not steam many guys here have made that mistake. How do you know its burning oil. How often does he change it? What oil is he using? Is he checking the level correctly? Lots of factors to get before you assume its burning it. If anything they make oil.

    Has the I/c been cleaned. Does he measure how much oil he removes, does he measure how much oil he refills?

    we noticed at the end of last season that his ski was low on oil. he lost an entire quart. i dont know what oil he's using but im sure its the recommended type. and yeah he checked it correctly and its defintely a white smoke not the usual steam you see from jetskis sometimes. I dont think he's touched the intertcooler to be honest. with the exception of oil changes and fueling up he hasnt really touched the ski.
