2009 Teryx LE has oil in front exhaust where is it coming from?
Teryx runs good, but oil is being dumped into front cylinder exhaust. The spark plug is clean, the head was pulled with new valves and valve stem seals installed. Head was reinstalled and cylinder holds pressure. Oil is still coming out of front exhaust when running.

Sounds like you've got a bad ring to me.

OK the problem has been fixed. Check piston and rings first and they were good as there was no leak down or blow by when checked. There is a crack some where in the head pressurized oil system as a new head <$700. has solved the oil in front cylinder exhaust. Yes this is the only one I have seen so this must be rare if not the first. This was not a coolant freeze caused failure as it had been running fine all day and after pulling some ATVs out of mud it just started poring oily smoke out. Crazy failure for the books.
