Need help with 2006 FX1000
Hey guys, my neighbor has a 2006 FX1000 (FX140?). It lost power last weekend while we were riding together and would only go 5 mph full throttle. Its all stock with 42 hours of fresh water use only. As I was working on it I noticed the engine oil is milky color like water got in the crankcase. There is no water in the hull and it has never sank or taken on water. I found cylinders # 1 and 2 not firing (no change in idle rpm when I unplugged # 1 and 2 coils)
I removed all 4 plugs and all look good and about the same, but noticed some steam coming from #1 cyl. My ? is has anyone seen this engine blow a head gasket?

Do a compression check.
If 1 & 2 are down then its into further investigation.
Whats the oil like on the tank ? Is it like mayo ?
I had this, but that because the mainstealership didn't know what they were doing.
