    Oil Comsumption


    How much oil should a 2007 FX Cruiser HO use?


    Mine has about 100 hrs on it and it uses about 1 quart every 20 hours. Is that normal?


    Thanks

    Yamaha does not give any specific oil consumption figures for the MR1 as far as I know. These motors do seem to consume oil in varying amounts, with high hour motors tending to have quite high consumption.

    Different quality oils will give different amounts of consumption & there have also been reports of consumption markedly increasing when changing from mineral to synthetic.

    Be sure to never overfill, 1\2 - 3\4 on the dipstick when hot is fine.

    Thanks for the info. I had thought that they were like cars in that there was almost no consumption (unless an old car)

    Now I know better and will check every time before I ride. I was quite suprised to see it go from full mark to the bottom mark in 75 hrs between changes!

    If possible try & check directly after a ride as this will give you a true reading when hot, doing it on the water also ensures the ski is level (having it unlevel can give a false reading). Also if checking before a ride (cold) if the level is half way between the marks or above then it will be overfilled!
