    Check the lines, check the connections, see if zip ties are missing. Look closely at the oil pump. Wipe it down and clean it off. Let it sit overnight and look again to see if there's any oil dripping off of it. Check the line connecting to the oil tank itself too. Good luck.

    Exclamation

    1. Disconnect battery (safety)
    2. Remove seat
    3. Battery tray/box if needed
    4. Remove rear storage bucket
    5. Get drop light and place in hull
    6. Inspect oil lines from oil pump to each carb.
    7. Inspect fuel lines to carb fittings.
    8. Wipe everything down clean with a rag.
    9. Do a compression check and verify compression is good.(inspect plugs too)
    10. Check carb pulse lines.
    11. Check all zip ties / hose clamps / crimp clamps on all carb connections.
    12. Clean hull well with a rag.
    13. After verifying everything is clean and secure, place a white paper towel about 24-36" long under the carbs. Let sit for 6 hours to overnight and check for leaks.
    14. Reconnect battery.
    15. Start engine again (on flush) and verify there are no leaks or drips on paper towel.
    16. If there are leaks drips, proceed to locate.


    Its also possible that you may have to proceed to remove the rear pipe to get a better visual of everything on and around the carbs. It sounds like that you have a possible oil line and/or fuel line leak if you seen gas and oil. Use preaution and safety when dealing with gas fumes. always disconnect the battery prior to any work where gas fumes may be involved.

    If you do have an oil line that has separated, you may want to consider going to a oil pump block-off plate and running premixed fuel.

    be sure to check your PV caps (where the 4 bolts are). Sometimes they become loose or not torqued enough and oil will potentially spill through the cap connection.

    Just a thought though.
