    787 oil recommendations

    Guys, I just finished rebuilding my ski & was looking for some good (general brand) oil you'd recommend that I can use. I have a 96 Sea Doo GSX with the 787 engine. Thanks

    I did look at the specs 50:1.....

    I feel like I'm having a blonde moment, hopefully you can help. My oil tank takes 1.6 GAL, at a 50:1 ratio do I add 4 Ounces of gas?

    my alcholic beverages have taken there toll.

    I was meant to say, at 15 gal. gas capacity (my seadoo) a 50:1 ratio is about 38oz.

    Man...I have math issues too. I just buy a Ratio-rite funnel/dispenser and it shows you how much to fill based on the gallons and ratio you desire.
