    Royal purple

    Does anyone use Royal purple in there ski? I have a 2006 FX HO(60 hours) and want to switch to synthetic oil. I looked on there site and it saids that its great in a marine environment, but i don't think it has a marine rating.

    Anyone have any insight as to if it is marine rated oil, if not should i stick to something else? I went to the local dealer and asked them for yamaha marine oil and they gave me honda motorcycle oil and said that its what they use for all of there PWC's.

    Thanks,
    Joe

    That's scary. What's the name of this dealer?

    I only use the Yamaha oil or the Amsoil in my ski. Here's a link to the proper Amsoil oil

    I have herd of it. But don't know any one that uses it. I think it came from snowmobiling. Not sure.

    I think the Royal Purple is a good oil. I know a lot of race guys that like it, but I don't know if they have a certified marine version. If it is NMMA certified for marine use it will have a FC-W stamp on it. If your ski is under warranty you will definitely want to use an FC-W rated oil, otherwise you will void your warranty. I use Amsoil Marine synthetic 10W-40, which is FC-W certified, which means that it has all the additives that will prevent corrosion etc. from water exposure, etc.. I used to think that oil was oil, but after reading through all the tests and specifications required to meet NMMAs requirements for certification I'm convinced that I would only want FC-W certified oil in my outboard or ski. Here is a list of FC-W certified oils:
