    Sea Doo GREASE in XLL/XLT Pump?

    Anyone thried the sea-doo grease in their pumps? A locoal dealer told me that they were using it in the Yamaha pumps. It's not the oil that they had in the old doos. Wanted to know if anyone has tried it and if they mixed it with the Yamie stuff.

    Stuff says on the bottle that it's ok for pumps with ball bearings.

    Pump Lube

    Folks have been using the seadoo syn pump oil or equal for years in Yamaha pumps. You don't mix it. You flush out Yamaha lube then use any good syn gear oil like mobil 1 etc... I had to add a filler plug to my pump cone. Maybe things have changed?

    I know the mixing info and about the OLD Sea Doo oil. But, Sea Doo now uses a lithium based grease.

    I don't really want to remove my pump and clean everything out. I added a diferent cone and need to just fill the pump back up, my stock grease looks brand new.

    Why not synthetic auto tranny fluid? Been running it for 2 years with no problems.

    Some have had trouble with that as it's too light weight.

    Well, I guess I'm lucky then. I've been doing it for two years, and at my last teardown 2 months ago the bearings looked perfect. I wonder why others have had problems?

    Syn oil

    fullboogie, I have run same stuff in my dirt bikes for years as well. I have never heard of anyone having an issue using it in the pumps. I have been using Mobil 1.

    Sea Doo Lube

    Seems like the Sea Doo GREASE is the same as the Yamaha stuff that comes in the pump. It's the same consitancy, colr, smell and everything. I'm using it!
