    the manual has all that info in it and more take the time and read it instead of asking the internet for the multitude of answers you will receive. btw the spark plugs will last in excess of 100hrs changing them is pointless unless you are all cashed up.

    I've been reading the manual and understand the weights of oil. Just I guess my questions was brand? I'm use to yamaha and having to purchase oil that has wet clutch style additives. Where as the Kawi does not. So do you still put a marine style oil or can you put any 4 stroke oil in it. When I purchased the ski from my local dealer. 45 min away, I asked and they said there oil change service fill for all ski's, they use Yama-lube.

    Go with the OEM Kawasaki synthetic oil as long as you have warranty, it's going to make things easier with your claim if something happened to your engine.

    I thought OEM Kawa oil though it's meets all marine industry standards was not a synthetic oil,anyway fine for recreational use and warranty issues..

    Oh I'm a " cashed up guy" I change my spark plugs every season

    I have ran Motul 300V, Mercury Racing oil and now Shell Ultra Helix... all work just fine.
    What ever match the OEM spec, Kawasaki do not run clutch! So no big deal!

    The book says check for loose bolts at the 10 hour service. Oil change is not until 20 hours. It never hurts changing it early though.
