    2018 XRS Rotax Engine Oil Analysis

    Hey,

    I'm not sure if anyone was interested but I figured I would post some oil analysis data for this engine.

    Fuel dilution is measured via gas chromatography, so this is an exact percentage vs. a calulation/estimation.

    This was on a brand new unit.

    A few comments. Stock oil and filter did not do a good job. Stock OEM map is surprisingly trimmed properly, it is not running rich nor lean, and the combustion dynamic is great. Poor ring seal and afraid I may have possibly not seated the valves correctly. This is a bit harder to do with a CVT vs a traditional transmission.
