    At the five hour mark, i changed the oil and filter as stated in the book. I noticed very little oil leaking from the bottom back of the motor.
    But now at 10 hours. I was running it checking the RPM's with a Tiny Tach for about 10 minutes. I noticed a considerable amount of engine oil on the floor.
    It's the DFI 29 HP.
    It's pretty much similar to the 27 HP & 23 HP both liq cooled.
    Whats wrong with it? I'm very handy and a dealer is 1 hour away. Could it be something that i could do? Has anyone else had similiar problems?

    Take it to the dealer don't fix it yourself. I had 2 25hp air cooled kawis leak arounfd the shaft seal, not a big deal but if its under warrenty let them fix it so its on record for the warrenty.
