    i know you will say its heavy , but when i was using 10-40 my oil was getting low cause of our extreme temps its 108

    there is a 10-40 castrol fully synthetic also my advice is to use it

    I've been running Amsoil Marine 10w40 since 10 hours with no issues. As long as you're using the correct oil it shouldn't be hurting the clutch. As mnetioned above in hot climates you may need to run a heavier oil.

    I used this for a short while and my clutch slipped.. http://www.amsoil.com/shop/by-produc...?code=WCFQT-EA

    Now I'm trying this out :http://www.amsoil.com/shop/by-produc...?code=MCFQT-EA

    It has : "AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-40 Motorcycle Oil contains no friction modifiers and promotes smooth shifting and positive clutch engagement. AMSOIL MCF controls heat and prevents slippage and glazing, helping improve clutch life."
    Since I can't find any oil made for a sprag clutch high performance application, I think, this is pretty close.

    How long did you use the marine synthetic beofre your clutch started slipping. How do you drain out all the oil to replace with another product because there will always be some you cant get out?

    The marine oil does not have friction modifiers......SeaDoo tried to go after amsoil saying there product was causing there clutches to fail......well amsoil did there own testing and not only did the marine oil be proven to be safe for the seadoo.....they continued to discredit the oEM oil by running it side by side with the amsoil marine.....They found the OEM oil sucked and was worse for the machine than anything they have seen

    Mixing 1/2 a QT with 4 fresh qts won't hurt a thing......Most synthetic oils are safe to be mixed with conventional oils.......they have a synthetic blend? thats regular and synthetic mixed
