    New Sea-Doo Oil?

    I apologize if this question has been asked before. I went to the dealer a week ago to buy oil for my 04 RXP. They showed me a list that said conventional oil is no longer used and the new oil is now semi-synthetic. Is this ok to use (my supercharger still has the original washers) or should I find a different type of oil?

    Any help is appreciated.

    If your ski still has the original washers, you should get them replaced with metal washers asap. Lots of people on this site use Castrol GTX 10w-40 mineral oil. Others use Amsoil. But I would get that SC done first... Ron

    Why don't you change the washers? This way there are dozens of oils you can run from $2-10 per quart.

    Thank you for responding,

    I will work on replacing the washers in the spring. What should I do for the winter? My guess is to go by some Castrol 10-40.

    Thanks Again.

    From experience DO NOT RUN that ski until you get the washers replaced. You are riding a ticking time bomb.

    sdman, welcome to the forum! I can not impress upon you enough to get that supercharger rebuilt before you ride it again! My good friend has 2 2007 RXT's with less than 15 hours and his ceramic washers came apart on one of them and caused $4000 worth of damage!

    read this:

    get the SC out and send it to Jerry and he'll rebuild for you for only $75 labor, have it back to you in less than a week! This IS what you should do in the winter!! Sitting on a time bomb is correct!

    As far as oil, I run Amsoil 4 stroke pwc oil and have run Amsoil in my vehicles since 1999 - expensive but very high quality. LOTS of discussion and opinions on this forum about oil!

    Yes, it is Russian Roulette with 5 bullets instead of just one... Ron

    If you don't want to change the washers then Sea Doo oil only and take the chance the washers last.
