    Question 2006 12f burning oil

    I just passed 40 hours and after a couple hours of hard running one day it started burning oil. I checked the plugs and they indicate it was running hot, so i went to a heavier synthetic and changed the plugs. Now it only burns oil at full throttle and loses speed(2-4mph). Any ideas which seal is failing? How much labour to replace?

    YEP You got probs.

    I have a 07 12f. It had 18 hours on it and lost power, (50%) and smoking like a chimney. Turns out they have a bad ecu and other issues. Notice no 12f's for sale in '08? Any ways, mine was out of warranty by 4 months, but my dealer contacted Kawa & they fixed it all for free. They know there is a problem. Pistons crack, etc. So, contact your dealer & ask them to get on the horn to Kawasaki. Its a bummer, but they do stand behind their product, and supposedly the new parts will fix the issue. If you are Joe mechanic, you can call Kawasaki & they will send you the parts if you wish. Good luck. It is a nice ski though aint it?
