    Think of changing my own oil 2008 RXPX

    I was thinking of doing my own oil change on my 2008 RXP-X. Want to see if a can save some money doing it myself. What is the recommended oil? It has 47 hrs last change was at 25 hrs.

    What oil weight? What brand? Can I put in zmax ?

    I heard that the oil level should be just a hair under the limit line .

    A lot of people here use the*AMSOIL*10-40 Synthetic Marine Oil. It is safe for the supercharger clutches.*https://www.amsoil.com/storefront/wcf.aspx?zo=367509

    Here is a test regarding the Sea-Doo and the*AMSOIL*Synthetic for the supercharger wet clutches.
