oil use on Xflow at Oulton


Recommended Posts

At Oulton yesterday my Xflow seemed to fill up the expansion bottle quite readily and then sprayed wings, offside of engine bay.


A mate of mine who is more mechanically minded than me (who was there) reckoned I might want to get the crankcase pressure tested. Was he being alarmist or is it just down to the old engine 🤔

They all do that Sir! Mine does anyway. I now fill the engine to halfway between full & minimum on the dipstick. This has cut it down dramatically, during a 20 min race I get about 25mm of oil in the catch tank. Obviously you need to keep an eye on the oil level to make sure it does not fall below the min. level. It does not necessarily mean your engine is sha66ed. Mine still goes well - touch wood.
