    milky cap and water lines

    Guys got a 2012 fx sho last week oil was perfect. Had ski out on the weekend jumping big waves and submerged it. Found the oil cap milky and breather hoses of rocker cover. Ski doesnt overheat i dont know if it took on too much water through riva filter or breather. Maybe when i washed it. Today sucked up all the oil out of engine and was very runny. Any suggestions. Is 1 oil change ok and im good to go ???

    You need to do a couple oil change until all the water is out of motor.

    Yes, 1 change will not do it if you had milkshake oil. 2-3 changes running it for a minute or two between each change and replace filter at least once. Then change filter a last time, fill it and run it around after the last change getting the motor good and hot for 30 mins or so minimum. You still may see a few water droplets under cap but this is normal remaining moisture evap.

    Pour 6-8 ounces of Seafoam in the crankcase and run it on the hose for about 10 minutes, then jack up the left side of the trailer to tilt the ski while changing the oil and you will get most of the oil out on the first try. After this, repeat with oil fill and drain again with no Seafoam.

    Yes, I would use something with the JASO MA approval though for the wet clutch due to the fact you will not get it all out before switching back to yamalube. Go to store and get the rotella T6 5w-40. Can get a gallon for about 20.00 and is actually better oil than most. And yes, it has JASO MA approval. You may just get hooked and stay with it....Fully synthetic.

    Could pull the plug out where the last drop oil extractor screws in. That might drain all the oil.
