Thread: Oil level

    Oil level

    When the ski is cold, I run the engine for 3 minutes , then get the rpms to 4000 and pull the lanyard. I let it set for a couple minutes then check the oil. It's half way between the bends.

    After a hard/hot day of riding if I check it at the end of the day after turning it off and waiting 5 so minutes it's like an inch above the 2nd bend.

    This ok ?

    It was 95 degree air and I was riding from 11am to 7pm.

    I guess what I'm asking is if it's half way at cold you are ok right ?
    There isn't a hot engine gauge is there like 2 inches above 2nd bend isn't good ?

    ...can't wait to get my thermo.... HOSS you done yet

    C`mon everyone has gone over and over this many many times before. Running it on the hose is NOT hot enough to get an accurate reading. Checking it while on a short ride is correct, get it warmed up to temp...don`t have to over rev or anything, just shut it down, wait a couple and check it, 1/2 - 2/3 is good...PR...
