I was wondering if it was the baffle too but mine actually stopped when I pulled the fae off. That or it's loud enough without the fae to drown it out but I don't think that is the case.
Fred, 'Oil Change-why not change it every 50hrs?' simply put, cost and hassle. i had it changed after the 20 hr break-in. I'm at 80 total hrs now and scheduled for a change next monday so this change will have 65-70hrs. then I think I'll stretch to the 100hr intervals and every fall with winterization. i can't imagine following the mercury maintenance schedule being hard on their engine that they would have to warranty.
Have you been changing every 50? Full synthetic? how does the oil look at that point?
