    Angry Oil Leak in Ultra 250X

    Aloha,

    I have a brand new Ultra 250X with only 11 miles on it. Took it to the dealer for 10 hour service including oil change.
    Brought ski back home and noticed a little ponding of oil at bottom of bilge below oil dip stick. Took it back to the dealer and they reinstalled a new oil filter and said that the excess oil probably came from a little spillage when the oil filter is removed.

    Took the ski out to ride again, flushed out inside the engine compartment and bilge area with clean fresh water. A day later noticed a little ponding again from apparently a slow leak somewhere below crank case. Oil filter does not appear to be leaking. Rubbed hand below the crank case and oil pan area and felt a layer of oil residue.
    Dealer will take a look at it again on Monday. They said it could be a defective gasket somewhere.

    Has anyone experienced a similar problem? Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated.

    Apparently there have been cases of tools and parts that have fell in the hull and punctured the pan. Use an inspection mirror to look around.

    Sorry I meant 11 hours. Typing too fast with finger/brain disconnect.

    Thanks for the tip. I'll be sure to tell the service tech to take a look at the oil pan area with a mirror.
