    If Riva recommended it then its good.
    I use the Valveoline motorcycle oil but the skis that I use it in are not modded.

    Last i remember VR1 had friction modifiers, which is a hugh no no with the supercharger clutches. You want oil designed for wet clutch systems, alot of us on here have been using Amsoil. Any 4cyl oil for streetbikes and motorcycles would be a good starting point.

    This is what you want the 10w 40 version. It has better stats than the Mobile 1 4T equivalent and its JASO MA2 Certified. On top of that you can get it at wal mart!

    Is my understanding that synthetic oil is not recommended for the SC unless you are using turbo application.
    I believe that Synthetic blend can be run for the SC motors.
    Thanks...

    SeaDoo did get rid of their full synthetic because they were having problems with the superchargers slipping.

    I would run at least a Motorcycle Oil that is a JASO MA2 for the clutches. I would not run the Valvoline VR1 Racing Car Oil due to the friction modifiers as sfackett0 said . A lot of people here that are running big superchargers are using the AMSOIL 10w-40 Synthetic Marine Oil with great success on high boost superchargers. Ou812 here ran the Mark Hahn 300 mile race with a Rude 2 and only lost 1lb. of slip during the race.

    Thanks for the input, I have asked because some one from Riva had advised to buy the Valvoline VR1 for all the performance PWC.
    Thanks...

    Actually all regular oil is a syn blend, last i was told it was 15-20% syn oil. All synthetic oil, is regular oil with all the molecules lined up in the same order so it has better flow characteristics, amongst other improvements.
