    The late great oil debate... Your going to have a bunch of personal preference posts with that one. Most use 10w-40 and pick your flavor, from ski oil, to bike oil, to car/truck oil...

    Can't go wrong with the stock Kawi filter and it's located at the front right side corner of the motor as your sitting on the ski. Watch out for the oil pressure sensor that's also in the area...it's easy to snap off.

    Personally, I run Rotella T 15w-40 with a Kawi filter and change at no more than 10 hours regularly.

    hey guys can you vote in my oil poll please with what oil you use im trying to get a data base together of engine failures and what oil was being used at the time

    more of the unexplain failures not motors boosted within an inch of its life

    ive always thought not using marine oil in the long term has to have negative effects on engine life from internal corrosion
