    Yes you can use the AMSOIL 10w-40 Marine Syntheitc Oil. You can buy it here from Jerry's store also. He is the owner of this site.

    i'll bet it does excede the dealer spec oil, But if he has an issue with his ski and needs to have it serviced and they send a sample to Kawi(which my dealer has done).it had better be KAWI oil..

    It does not have to be KAWI oil period. They can't make you run their oil due to the magnuson moss act law or they have to give it to you FREE If it meets the specs you can run what ever oil you want. If it is due to a lubrication related failure and caused by AMSOIL they will cover it.

    AMSOIL INC. of Superior, Wisconsin hereby warrants that its lubricants are fit for use according to the written recommendations of AMSOIL INC. and in applications specifying one or more of the standards set forth in the product data bulletins and product labels. AMSOIL INC. further warrants its products to be free of defective materials, design, and workmanship.

    AMSOIL INC., Attn: Technical Services
    AMSOIL Bldg.
    Superior, WI 54880
    e.In cases where the OEM warranty is still in effect and that warranty coverage is denied based on the use of an AMSOIL lubricant, the customer shall immediately notify AMSOIL INC. and provide a written copy of the OEM warranty denial. f.AMSOIL INC. may, at its option, notify its insurance carrier of the claim.g.AMSOIL INC. or its insurance carrier may conduct an investigation that includes, but is not limited to, an inspection of the failed parts, a review of the operating conditions, and a thorough review of the information requested above.

    AMSOIL does stand behind their products. They have been in business for 35 years. They were the first to have a 100% syntheitc API oil in 1972. They do not produce a petroleum oil. Why go 35 years backwards in technology?
