    Re: about done with this thing 96xp

    How about if your looking to buy, say a 96xp, what are the signs that the seals are going?
    Engine smokes on startup I suppose?

    I assume if the seals are not operating properly it also allows the bath oil to be sucked in depleting the bath compartment and counterbalance shaft?


    .
    The thick gear lube does not leak into the cases. You can hold a flashlight under the tubing and see the lube in it. I have maybe added 1 oz to my son's the whole time.....like 5 years!

    Engine will smoke BADLY on startup. Can also foul plugs while riding in a single day. Most commonly hydro locks the engine with oil over winter storage.

    Put a volt meter on the battery and watch the DC voltage while it's running. What does it do?

    A bad voltage regulator will cause one to act like that......it confuses the ignition system.
