Do these things typically consume oil
Just wondering how much oil these things will gradually "eat" over time. I realize you're getting some forced into the intake tract or catch can (if you install one) but other than that reasonably how much oil can I expect to see it lose? Are you guys having to add a little here and there between changes to keep it at optimum levels?

over the course of like 20 hours MAYBE...
if you are catching oil in the can like after every ride or two... i'd HIGHLY suggest you either check your oil level to see if it's too high, or do a compression test.

Shibby,besides the oil being over filled and getting in the air intake, what's the compression test have to do with oil in the intake.

compression check would show signs of blow-by ...... seen it more times that anyone would like to know... and characteristics are EXACTLY that... it starts off minimal with oil collecting in the intake or catch can.... before you know it few hours later the condition worsens and u see you burning QUARTS of oil every few hours instead of just a few ounces
i don't wanna single anyone out, but someone on this forum will tell ya all about it! and we seen it in our shop with a modded RXP
rough water riding and/or high oil level are the first contributors to check... if ur still burning oil and spitting it into the air intake excessively take off your SC and see all the scum inside it. take your external intercooler and put it in a bucket of gasoline or kerosine and watch how black and oily the bucket will turn....

Yeah i was curious because my oil warning went off yesterday and when I check the dipstick there was barely any on the tip of the dipstick...Got me to wondering as I know it was up between the dipsticks less than 10 hours ago...
I was suspecting potential blowby...I don't have a catch can installed yet but I didn't notice a significant amount of oil in the intake tract...
I dread thinking about it being blow-by...
What should compression be on these motors?

since installing the jazz puke tank,,,,I don`t burn jack.

when checking compression, they are usually around 140ish in each hole... what do they say, make sure they are all within 10% of each other or something?
04-16-2006, 05:31 PM #8
Yeah it's more important that they all be very close to each other but I was curious about the base number I'd like them to be around as well...
Of course I've got to get a different fitting so I can compression test as they're not standard plugs...
04-16-2006, 05:37 PM #9
they are 12mm plug holes

Yeah after I sat there for five minutes trying to figure out why it wouldn;t screw in I wanted to kick myself in the butt for not remembering that in the first place...
Why does Sea Doo have to do everything a little "different"...
