    If you have stock ceramic washers then you should go with the recommended Mineral Sea Doo oil!

    Mineral Oil is fine even with metal washers! The OEM Seadoo oil is what I use.

    If you want to use the Sea-Doo oil you have to use their blend or the petroleum oil. You can't use the old full synthetic oil you will have slippage issues. Yes you can use the AMSOIL 10w-40 Full Synthetic Marine Oil with no issues. http://www.amsoil.com/redirect.cgi?z...storefront/wcf It has been proven here and by AMSOIL. Here is a link below regarding the Sea-Doo Synthetic Oil and the AMSOIL how it works with the clutches.

    Yes you are correct they did phase out the other oils. I know there are still a lot of dealers that have the old oil on the shelves though. The new oil is a 5w-40 synthetic blend.

    I'm looking at using the motorcycle syn 10w40 amsoil for my 2 rxp's. i'm having the clutches upgraded as we speak. i'm only leaning towards that oil because it seems to have better rust resistance and overall comparable characteristics to the marine syn oil. What are your thoughts on this??

    Also do you have testing on the new seadoo semi syn vs the amsoil syn?
