05 RXT oil leak
I did an oil change last year with about a month of riding left in the season. Ski ran great. Then I winterized it and it sat inside a garage for the winter.
Rode ski back in late april one time. Low oil came on after about a half hour of riding. Added 1 quart and rode another 2 hours with no problems....
Ski has been sitting since then because I have it stripped down to paint it. noticed oil on the ground coming out of the drain plug holes. Looked inside and see the bailer tubes have oil in them. I assume the oil leaked over the winter and when I rode it this year the bailers sucked up the oil out of hull
Where could this leak be coming from?
I checked the oil filter canister, it seems ok.

two places where i would look are the driveshaft seal inside where the splines go. mine was leaking there.... lots of hours it should be replaced. then in front of the motor on the oil screen cover down under the stock IC location.

I have seen one leak from under the rear of the engine, i believe this was the oil cooler

My extended warranty runs out on June 6th. Would this be covered by it?
