    Finaly got onto the dealer today and they are saying it will most likely be the oil thermostat that can fault and cause the same problems as a typical oil overfill.
    But i find it hard to believe that a thermostat issue could explain why the oil is showing 3cm above the full mark when the motor is cold? and also cause all the same symtoms as the oil overfill, or are they just trying say theres another issue so they dont have to take responsability for the oil overfill?

    Thank you yeah will do, Ive spent a fair bit of time reading up on these motors and i have also discovered the dealer has overfilled the oil. I didn't think much off it when i first opened it up but now its very apparent. there is oil through out the motor everywhere and it has destroyed the air filter. So maybe that's what caused the hose to come loose regarding that error 54. When i check the oil its a good three center meters above the full mark, however Im now not game enough to run the ski through the hose for 15 minutes to check it when its warm. im going to take it back to them when they re open after the new year.
    the motor is running really really rough so im hoping there hasn't been to much damage done. can i ask what type of pressure should it be spitting out when they do the compression test? or any other things i should look out for if its done damage and the dealer tries to get out of it?
    I only had the ski serviced by them 4 or so hours use ago.

    Hi Ernest T,

    With that 06 fx ho with the error code 54 i did what you said and found a really loose hose that could just slip off. Once i fixed it i was not getting the error any more. however i just put it into the river today and it seems to be running extremly rich and has trouble iddeling. I can also smell alot of fuel and can see a fair bit of either fuel (dont think its oil) in the water. it was also running very sluggish and had trouble getting off the mark.. but im not getting that error 54 anymore. could this still be linked to the same issue?

    Ernest T,

    I am new to this forum. Need a little more clarification on where to spray the fogging oil for a 2010 FX HO. I saw the hose diagram you sent out. Which hose do I spray the fogging fluid in?

    I saw on the forum you were explaining to someone the way the dry sump worked. You have also helped me a lot with my vx110 not hitting top speed. I checked my oil level with the engine cold and it is past the full line on the stick. I can see the oil if i look in the oil tank. At first i thought WOW! it has way to much oil. Now after reading what you said about it and the different cycles im a bit confused. should i turn the ski on for a bit and then check it again to see what it reads?

    Owned my 2000 xlt1200 for four years, new top end and power valves.... I brought it in to shore last summer and pressed the kill switch. Thirty minutes later I go to start and I've lost spark... I've read your forums about checking the kill switches, all good there, yes this ski has a d plate. I've unplugged and checked a lot of connections...even the ones in the sealed coil box...still nothing. Where do I go next...stator? And where do I check this... Can I check the cdi box?
