    Oil Consumption

    Have you guys with modded skis noticed you burn more oil then normal? After a few days of some long runs, periodically at WOT, but for the most around 6000-6500rpm, my oil level dropped. It took a just under a half quart to top off. Should this be happening?
    My compression seems ok, @ 125psi across all three. My battery was low at the time so it may be higher. Also no more exhaust fumes or smoke compared to other skis.
    So could it be that my rings are toast or could it be due to the fact I had used castrol 10W 40, as appose to the BRP recommended oil? I hope its the later of the two. How to I confirm its the rings, if that is the suspected cause?

    Do you have a catch can? My RXP blew by a half a litre over the summer. If it is burning way more then that then it's the Lord of the Rings.

    No i don't have a catch can. Wish I did. I seemed to burn more then that. I guess there is no way to tell if the rings are toast, aside from taking the motor apart and having a look....winter project I guess
