    +1 on the M14T. Ive used it since I bought the ski. Im thinking about jumping on the Napa filter next oil change too.

    You might see a higher oil consumption with the 5-30 oil.

    I wouldn't use 5w-30 in this engine. These engines are designed to run 10w-40 as they use the oil as a barrier between rotating surfaces and the lighter oil runs a higher risk of not having enough oil pressure and film strength to properly maintain necessary clearances for high pressure/high rpm operation. The manufacturer recommends 10w-40 and I have tried a bunch of different ones and all have worked well just fine. I would run a good quality oil such as Mobil, Castrol, Amsoil or the factory recommended Yamalube. There are others that will work just as well but the important thing is to use a good quality 10w-40 without friction modifiers and most motorcyle oils meet these requirements and alot of people use motorcycle oils with great success.
