    nonsynthetic oil
    seadoo 4 stroke or castrol gtx 10w-40. It is the same thing. Only difference is $10 a liter for seadoo oil or $2 a quart for castrol.

    Use any oil, synthetic or not, that is approved for use in motorcycles with wet clutches. I'd bet that a lot of the clutch problems are being caused by the SD oil...just like rave valve problems in their 2 strokes were caused by XPS oil.

    I'll second Richard, any oil that specifies wet clutch compatable.
    I hate to beat a dead horse but Castrol GTX Does not meet that specification. Castrol stated on the phone that the GTX contains molybendium?? A friction modifier.

    They suggested their motorcycle oil.

    Just my .02

    I have been using the Castrol GTX 10W40 for three years now. No engine problems, no clutch problems.
