    GP 1200R altervative oil.

    Im new to the forum, and jet ski season is just around the corner. What oil can i use in my GP1200R thats an safe alternate to the Yamalube 2W? I spent way to much money last year at $31.00 a gal. What would be the best?

    Welcome to the Hulk.

    Do you have the catalytic converter still installed??
    Any modifications to the boat?

    If you still have the cat in it you can run the AMSOIL HP Injector oil. http://www.amsoil.com/redirect.cgi?z...storefront/hpi
    If I were you I would take out the cat and put in a D plate though to help make it run cooler also.

    I agree with Kevin. Amsoil Injector if you still have converter but many to choose from if you dump the cat. I prefer Amsoil Dominater or Interceptor.

    Get rid of the cat and use the Interceptor. I'm currently using the Dominator but it's not needed unless you're running closer to "the edge".

    This will get you started in the right direction for the easy stuff.

    Safety and reliability come first around here though.
    Reinforce the pump tunnel
    Get D-Plate in there
    Replace the stock intake grate
    Use clips on the Powervalves

    Welcome to the forum !

    Amsoil Interceptor is a great alternative.
