OIL - 4TEC - Bottom Line
Friction modifiers, whats the skinny on oil for the 4tec? I can`t see friction modifiers being a problem for the clutch system with metal washers. I am now installing the pro clutch dealio from Race Engineering and the clutch will get alot more oil. Friction modifiers will not let my clutch work at all? Synthetic? I can`t see me giving BRP another dime of mine. The dealer?, ha,,,spent too damn much for nothing already.
There`s got to be a better way. I know greenhulk has switched back to BRP mineral. Only chime in if you use or used something other than SeaDoo oil.

In my ski I tried using oil that contained friction modifiers and i suffered from early clutch slippage so i went back to the BRP oil. However, i have been using an Amsoil synthetic that contains no friction modifiers in Carey's ski for the last 15-20 hours and everything is perfect.

There is an amsoil dealer on this site if I stand correct. 800amsoli, I think. Anyone got his correct screen name. I wanna talk to him and place an order. This is the best stuff next to Royal Purple products.

It's good stuff. I've been running it in my RXP for about 50 hours (20ish on ceramics and then the other 30 on metal washers) with nothing but good results...

This is long, but a good read on Oils for Wet Clutches. 28 Oils were tested. Some oils did very well for engine wear, but failed the gear test and so on.
