Have you seen this list?

You can use any high quality 2-stroke oil that meets at least TC-W3 specification. There are higher quality oil specs, and your engine can use better oils, but TC-W3 is the absolute minimum grade.
I only use synthetic 2-stroke oil in my own Polaris engines. Poalris branded oil is actually very good, especially the synthetics, but often pricey.
I am currently using Amsoil brand HP Injector oil, which is a synthetic oil
Available online, from local distributors, and some retail locations.
Do not use Sea-Doo 2-stroke oils. Sea-Doo has a different spec for their 2-stroke oils.
Spark plugs can be found online, or at better parts stores. Be sure to use good quality plugs.
NGK PZFR6H is the OEM specification spark plug for all Ficht fuel injected engines, and there are no substitutes. Make sure you are buying the correct part number.
Online prices are about $12 each, in stores they can be over $20 each
These spark plugs work very well, but others have found that old PZFR6H spark plugs that still 'look good' can cause problems. After checking many other things, installing new spark plugs solved their problem. So change those plugs
I recommend synthetic waterproof Marine bearing grease, with a Lithium base (not calcium). I use the Amsoil product.
Grease gun and such can be purchased from any automotive parts or service location. On your Virage, there is only one actual Zerk grease fitting, on the through-hull bearing assembly.
For the various cables and other fittings, I use a medium size syringe filled with the same waterproof grease, and inject it inside the covering rubber boots and such.
