    I had the same issue but it was my oil cap. I bought a new cap and haven’t had an issue since.

    In all of my years of snowmobiling I've never had an issue with oil reservoir caps.

    Me either until I noticed my wife's Rush show small signs of oil getting past the cap. As I thread it on it feels kinda funny like it's not threading good. I think a new cap or aluminum insert will solve it.
