GTX non-SC Riders - what oil is being used
I am helping a new PWC owner winterize his '06 GTX non-SC, 155 hp Sea Doo. What brand and weight oil have you guys been using? Synthetic can be used in this model since it has no SC, correct?

Yes you can use synthetic oil in that engine. You can use synthetic oil in the supercharged engine also if it meets the frictional requirements of JASO MA/MA2 wet clutch oil. Here is the AMSOIL SAE 10W-40 Formula 4-Stroke® Marine Synthetic Motor Oil I would use in that engine. Marine engines are prone to rust, leading to uncontrolled wear and premature engine failure. However, good rust protection is not natural to engine oil. It comes only by design. AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke® Marine Synthetic Motor Oil is fortified with a special anti-rust agent, even more than required to pass stringent NMMA FC-W anti-rust testing.
10W-40 for Non Supercharged engines.
Here is the oil for the Supercharged engine. 0W-40
I hope this helps.

Guys, thanks for the feedback. Ordered some oil for the GTX non-SC, and my RXP and RX DI from Kevin. He is a good guy to deal with.
Thanks Kevin for your assistance.
