    FX160 Oil consumption

    Hi. Could someone who has a fx160 tell me how much oil they use ? Is a litre every 25 hours more or less than you use ? Thanks

    Seems quite a bit check the rings............my 1800 uses no oil between changes.......

    know stuck rings are an issue on the vx1100 motors lots of WOT will use more oil

    you are checking it warmed and level? Aren’t you?

    The MR-1 motor does use some oil at high rpm.

    Mine uses oil, if I ride in really rough water and come unhooked a lot it seems to use more.

    I had an 04 that used oil back when it was new
    If did a lot of WOT it could use 1 litre in two tanks
    But I am talking flat out for over an hour

    I maintain plenty of Yamahas with the MR1......they use oil! About a liter every 20-30 hours. Some more, some less. I've recently started using 15w40 synthetic in the Yamahas and it looks like it's helping. I'll know more next season.
