    Question Oil type for change

    i put in the seadoo yellow quart oil which is the synetic oil

    however my bro went to get oil today at the powersports shop and someone said that you should not put in the yellow bottles for the 4-tec sc motors, need to put in the white seadoo oil bottles...

    ?????

    you shouldnt use synthetic oil in s/c 4techs as it causes clutch slip on the s/c washers so stick to the white mineral oil.

    We know synthetic may make stock ceramic washers slip, but has anyone had metal washers slip running synthetic?

    Reason I ask is I have over 100 hrs on metal washers running synthetic and zip zero nada clutch or supercharger issues and the clutch look as good as the day i put it in.

    And NEVER put MINERAL OIL in your engine, its CONVENTIONAL oil, mineral oil is a waste byproduct of refining conventional oil and is not a motor oil.

    If you are running the OEM ceramics(which i hope your not)then you
    DO NOT want to run synthetic oil..Once you put the steel clutches in you can then run synthetic oil BUT you want to make sure it is:

    API SG,SH/CF JASO MA rated

    You do not want to run the BRP synthetic oil in your Sea Doo. But you can run the AMSOIL 10w-40 Synthetic Marine Oil. It is safe for the super charger clutches ceramic or metal. http://www.amsoil.com/catalog.aspx?GroupID=11&zo=367509

    Here is the test on the oils.

    What about Mobil 4T 10W40? At almost 10 bucks a quart is it safe with ceramics and/or metal. I thought it was one of the finest oils available???? As long as its JASO MA certified it should be good, Right ?

    Amen Brother! The technical service bulletin TSB SE-2007-04-19 spells it all out and removes ALL the BS rumors out there about use of synthethic oil in Seadoo superchargers! AMSOIL is by far the most superb oil on the market - period. I've had a dual bypass system in my 1999 Chevy Z-71 for years - awesome products!

    I would disagree on Amsoil being the Best on the market. I lost 2 sets of clutches on that stuff (one ceramic, one metal) Since I switched to Mobil 1 0W40 I have run 100 hrs with no problems.
