How often do you check your oil?
Those of you with 4 strokes, how ofter do you check your oil level? Before each ride after warmup or what?

Before every ride. Before I leave the house Igo through my little check list.
1. safety gear
2. Full charge on the Radio and phone
3. chow, water
4. check fluids oil & coolant have extra with me.
5. quick start.
6. Put drain plugs
7.check all straps
8. hook up trailer
9. check trailer lights
10. go to gas station.

Before I leave the house and generally after I get back as well.

when i leave and when i take it out. on some 4 strokes (my fx ho atleast) the oil tends to seep into the pistons and such so if you check the oil before you go, start the jetski and let it run for 1 minute before you check. MY dealer said this was normal.....but im not 100% sure.

Ive heard that it needs to be warm to get an accurate reading, Ive checked my ski every time after I ride and its always in the middle between high and low.

I know the VX 110 motors are dry sump lubercation, so yes you must run the motor about 30 seconds to get an accurate oil level reading. I forgot if the FX HO motors were dry sump lubercation but i am assuming they are.
