    Oil around Filter Cap Bolt 2012 RXPx

    After the first ride earlier this year I noticed some oil that had pushed out around the oil filter cap bolt. It seemed like a very little amount so I wondered if I had left a little when changing the oil before storing the ski for the winter (stay in a heated garage but I still go thru the winterizing process each fall). After the 4th ride I still have the problem and if I ride much it will run a little bit down the side of the canister.

    When I changed the oil last fall, I changed only the filter and not the orings - same as the year before. I'm pretty careful with orings and making sure I have oil on them before reinstalling.
    Has anyone seen this? I've purchased the new top oring for the bolt and plan to install it before going back out but wanted your guys opinion first. I'm thinking I should just get another filter too while in there.

    Thoughts?

    after a couple of oil changes, replace those O-rings or start buying more shop rags.

    I swap em out after two changes usually.
