    Oil and intervals ?

    I got the ski with 13 hours on it and changed the oil, looks like it definitely needed it.
    I put in rotella synthetic oil and as to what I can tell it is JASO approved and I also use it in my honda motorcycle.
    What is the interval on the oil change after the 10 hour oil change?

    I change mine once a month along with the plugs. Seadoo says something different.

    Not sure if this is bad advise but, I've heard you should not use synthetic oil with these supercharged motors.

    The guy asking has a GTI SE... which has no charger.

    You can pretty much run whatever you'd like in that machine.

    There are plenty of SC safe synthetic oils out there.... that have been proven trouble free for years.

    I think the book says to change the oil every 10 hours.
    That seems excessive for a synthetic oil but I am no expert.

    It use to be 100 hours... not sure what the newer manuals say

    Personally... I would never run the oil for 100 hrs. Hell... I wouldn't even run it for 50 hours!

    I usually do 10 hours on the first oil change and then 30-40 hours max there on.

    Apparently I'm a lil slow and should have looked at the chart before I posted this. It is 100 hours but I will just do mine yearly as I have only put 8 hours on it since I bought it.
