    New Kawasaki Owner...Not Happy

    After owning Sea-Doo’s for 16 years I decided to change things up and purchase a new 2015 Ultra 310X SE. After the third time out (5 hours total) I noticed oil down inside the bottom of the hull. I called the dealership and was told it may have been spilled during the PDI. So I cleaned it up and went out for a fourth time. When I got the boat back to shore and on the trailer the same thing…a puddle of oil collected in the bottom of the hull. So tomorrow it’s to the dealership to see if they can fiqure out where it’s coming from. Obviously I’m disappointed with having this kind of issue with a brand new machine. Where’s the quality control? I’m thinking I should have stayed with the Sea-Doo product. Will post what the dealership discovers.

    Wow that's messed up, maybe the dealership over filled your unit have you checked the oil level first?

    Yes I’ve been monitoring the engine oil level and it appears to be unchanged. However the puddle of oil is only a few ounces so it may not be noticeable on the dip stick.

    Have you checked the oil filter to see if it is lose?

    Yes...I first felt around the filter with my hand and then used an inspection camera to look around the area. The leak is not coming from the filter.

    Hope you get this bug fixed ASAP, I seriously doubt it's anything serious. Trust me, it's a good ski and you will like it. Let us know what the outcome is.

    I dropped it off at the dealership this morning (I hate the idea of leaving it there). I also own a 2010 Ninja 650R that I bought new and I'm the only one that has done any wrenching on it.Click image for larger version.

    Spilled oil can find awesome hiding spots. Just saying. Maybe it's a leak, maybe it's not.

    In technician speak: "If it's not dripping, it's not leaking." Means you have to SEE it leaking, to fix it. Otherwise, mop and go.
