    when is a deal not a deal?

    I bought a ultra 250 with little hours on it from a guy who has more money than brains . I know the entire history of the ski.I paid 8500 for the Ski, and the trailer it needed new lights. I am concerned about all this talk about gas in the oil. So far , (i'm a newbie) i've enjoyed my new toy, but like i said i'm a little concerned about this issue... how do i know if i am affected? do i wait for a fire? decreased performance? Ducks laughing as they swim pass me? should i have it looked at during my next service?(which here in NY will most likely be the last before the winterzation)
    Thanks.

    Pull your dip stick out and smell it. If it smell like gas mix with oil, then you have gas in the oil.

    TRD,
    Thanks for the favor of a reply.... i did not think of it as being that easy... but i will check it out... I hope that everything will be ok.. but in the Historically "not ok" being my life.. what does one do? My warranty is still good... i guess it's back to the dealer then huh?
    I'm not looking forward to that.. I can tell you....
    Thanks again

    Dealer won't do anything about it because Kawasaki will tell the dealer it's normal. R&D came out with a fix for it. Check out Skip's project 250X site.

    Use the search feature on this forum. Just about anything you would want to know about the 250X has been posted on at one time or another.
