    oil check question

    does anyone else seem to have this problem. When I go to check my oil I can never get a good reading becuase the oil is all over the stick when I pull it out. I"ll wipe it off and stick it in then pull it out and its the same all over. Like it picks up oil in the tube or something when you pull it out. When I changed the oil and ran it in the driveway. IT was 1/4 below full. I wanted to check it after I ran it at the lake for a while, but could never get a good read because of this. I think I need to suck a bit out. ski was turning 8040 rpm, but maybe its ok, I just dont want it to be overfilled.

    if it's a stock machine, judging by your rpm's, you're probably OK on the oil level

    Use the quck dip method. Take the dipstick out wipe it off, and quckily push it all the way down, and then pull it out very quickly. Someone on this board recommended it and it works great. The oil level line is easy to read when you use this method.

    Quick dip works. Look for a grey line. That will be your oil level.
