    There's plenty of posts on this.

    You can run synthetic so long as it is formulated without additives. NO CAR synthetic is like this and that is the reason people say 'no synthetics'.

    There are several of us running Amsoil 4stroke synthetic without issues - it is designed for a wet clutch environment.

    While some people might not like their sales approach and prefer to pay the markup of a retail store - that's fine, they're entitled to their opinion. However I do not know of a single documented case where using Amsoil has caused a supercharger failure. I'd welcome hearing one.

    Anyone ever hear of Spectro? A friend of mine works at a dealer and he says they use that stuff instead of seadoo's oil. I would imagine it's compatable considering it's main use is in import bikes with wet clutches.

    I've heard of it, don't have any experience with it.

    If it is designed for wet clutches it *probably* doesn't have any additives, but I would check to be certain.
