    you can use any oil as long as it DOES NOT contain friction modifiers and is wet clutch compatiable. Alot of people use amsoil on here, do a search, theres quite a few threads on this already.

    You want a NON-friction modifier oil, alot of us use Amsoil.. See the buy amsoil tab on the links to the left. Most oils including(penzoil) have friction modifiers which will cause your SC clutch to slip.

    Here is a great test on Motorcycle oils. You decide on what is best. I hope this helps out. If it were my ski I would use one of the oils that tested in the top couple not the bottom.

    Man I 've PM'd the Hulk on this several times. Seems like it always comes back to running the Seadoo oil. Soooo why take a chance???Personally, I think changing the oil often and using the Seadoo oil will pay off in the long run. I'm at 200 hours with ceramic washers still in my 06, but of course I'm still under warranty.......too risky! going to metal washers soon

    Yup, same here... I just run the Sea-Doo oil. It's not like it's more expensive than the Amsoil or anything... and if there is ever a question on warranty then I can show that I did EVERYTHING per Sea-Doo's recommendations.

    I use the motorcycle amsoil 10w-40 (amsoil code MCF)since we carry it at work and is wet clutch compliant, but they do sell one made especially for pwc called Formula 4-Stroke 10w-40 (amsoil code WCF)
