    First ride of the season (MSX 150)

    Hey guys,

    Took her out yesterday, ran slow to 1/2 thoddle for about 30 minutes then wot for a few minutes. She ran nice.

    Still have a slight residue of condensation at top of the oil sump. You can see it when you remove the dip stick. Ski is due for an oil change. So I may just drain and fill with cheap oil, then start her with flush kit, drain oil and add cheap stuff again, start her with flush kit...

    That it what we have to do when we swamp our ATV engines to get the water out.

    On the last cycle I will change the oil filter then add the 15w-50.

    Good to see you're running. Have you checked with Jay or chip about any other tips for the water condensation?

    Thats normal for that condensation up there. Cold water flowing threw the metal oil tank lid. Oil is hot so it collects around the top, Run it. It like my brothers old 1977 ford F250 with the 390 in it.Any time you had to add oil it showed that slime of condensation on the filler neck. Very normal.
