    Synthetic Oil and Metal SC clutch Washers

    I just ordered a green wheel and metal clutch washers to replace the time bomb ceramic clutches. Bombardier says not to use synthetic oil as it will cause the stock ceramic clutches to slip. Is this still the case with metal washers?
    Can I perhaps shim in a little higher slip moment to compensate?
    I would really like to run synthetic as I am convinced any motor will last much longer on it.

    Amsoil makes a synthetic that you can safely run in your ski.

    The key is finding an oil with no friction modifiers.

    As long as it has a JASO - MA rating, it is fine.

    I run Amsoil in my ski, but have only been out on the Lake once.

    I was using MCF 10W40. you`ll need 4 qts if your doing an oil change. you should be pulling out 3.2-3.6 quarts average.
    Buy it by the case. and I was using the oil filters found in Jerry`s store!
