Hello Everyone,

I just changed the oil in my Super Z and the oil had gasoline in it. (the oil was very thin and smelled strongly like gas)

What do you guys think is going on?

Thanks

Sorry for the delay, I did not see the post for some reason.....

As for gas in the oil, I would look at a couple of things, first you want to check your carb, to make sure fuel is not leaking past the float needle.
If that is ok I would look at your air filter, if it is plugged with dirt it will cause your engine to run very rich, thus passing some of the unburned fuel past the piston rings and into your crankcase.

Do you have the heavy duty filter system on your unit ? if not I would get it ASAP.

Talk to your dealer about these items if you do not feel comfortable doing it yourself.
Any Kawasaki dealer can take care of you also.

Again sorry for the delay in answering your post.

Hope this helps
