What 4-stroke oil do you use?
I have done a few things to my 05 RXP 215, so the engine puts out about 260hp, just done a engine rebuild as one of the valves broke and ended up where it shouldnt have....
The IC was leaking just a tiny bit, and I got water in the oil... didnt check the oil, and there you go...
With the engine rebuild I got new Riva valves, and have decided that the oil aswell has to be changed for something better.
But Im unsure of what type of oil I should change to, do I HAVE to get a MA-1 oil or maybe just a MA oil without friction modifyers.
I have been reading abit around on bike engine and snowmobils and there are even people useing normal car engine oil witch are reporting no problems with the wetclutch slipping.
I have been thinking of changing to Mobil 1 Racing 4T 10W-40 as im useing Mobile 1 on my car and it has preformed realy well.
But Im dont know why, but im not that keen on haveing oils with slipp modifiers, it just feels wrooong...
Im on the brink of pulling out my charger, buying different kinds of oil and start tourque checking the oils to see if the clutch is slipping befor it should.......
Anyway, anyone able to share some expreiance?

Valvoline 10w-40 4-stroke motorcycle oil for wet clutches, good oil for supercharged 4-tecs.. I have been using it for a while now.. Only 4.99 to 5.99 at most auto stores
