    1.35oz of SAE 30 motor oil is what the manual calls for. I used synthetic gear oil when I rebuilt my 98 GTXL, two years now and no problems.

    You do realize that I've now jinxed myself and it will go boom on the next ride .

    good to see the truth posted over here, and not allot of clicky garbage like over at PWCtoday.

    I'm personally going to do it every 10-15 hours, won't hurt anything, it'll just blow out the pipe if it gets over filled, better safe than sorry, that could take out your whole engine, very expensive fix.

    Go see what bill o said, when I tried to help someone on PWCToday about this question.

    I have always wondered about checking the oil in there but short of pulling the pipe it's almost impossible to get to the fill plug. Do any 951 guys check this regularly ? If it runs dry it will ruin your day.
