2007 Sportsman 500 x2 Water in Oil Tank
As the title says...I have a 2007 500 X2 that I purchased new. Machine has about 400 hours and 2000 miles of pretty hard utility and trail riding use. I've had my share of problems including an exploded front gearbox last summer (replaced with a non-ADC unit) and now this:
Just did my spring service including oil change with Amsoil 0-40 which I have used since new. When I drained the oil tank, a tablespoon of clear water came out followed by milky oil. I also drained the crankcase and got milky oil. My coolant has never been changed, and the level remains the same as when I got it from the dealer. All the vent hoses and everything else seems pretty normal. No exernal leaks at all.
Could all this be condensation?! I change my oil every 6 months or so, so who knows how long this water has been in there. I have really not been doing any deep water riding at all. Anyone else have this problem? After the oil change it started right up and seemed to run normally with no smoke so hopefully I got out of this without engine damage, but I guess I'll never know for sure. I'll do a compression test next time I go out there...what else can I do to suevey the engine's condition?
Pretty dissappointed with this latest problem. I obsessively maintain my stuff so I sure hope this hasn't done permanent damage. I really like this machine as it is the only one out there with the utility of a dump box and 2-up capability (both features I use regularly)
Thanks for any help,
