    oil question

    Ok with riding season fastly approaching for me I am getting my 05 RXT and my 06 RXP ready. I am going to be changing the oil on both them this week and I have the filter and everything. My question is about the oil I went out and bought 2 gallons of Shell Rotella T-6 5-40 synthetic oil. I checked it to make sure it not energy conserving and it isnt and it also says on the back the it meets or exceeds the requirements for JASO-MA which i know is the cert for our clutches in our skis. I just want to be sure this will be ok since I have seen people on here say not to use synthetic on the supercharged 4-tecs but this oil meets JASO-MA cert. Will everything be ok?

    My input is to purchase the annual maintenance kit for both bikes through the forum's online store. That way, you know you're getting exactly what you're paying for and need. Besides, the oil and filter, you're also getting the required spark plugs.
