    Oil Change?

    Just had a few question about doing an oil change on a 08 RXT-X. There is a good thread on here about doing your own oil chang but, It seems that most people aren't able to remove all the oil from the ski. So if your planning on changing the oil brand is this a concern of mixing the oils? What is a good recomendation on what oil to use? This is ski is raced in supercourse, so we run it wide open anywhere from 40min-1hr wide open.

    Thanks

    You can mix the 2 oils with no issues just try to get out as much of the old oil as possible.

    There are a bunch of people here that have been using the AMSOIL Synthetic Marine 10w-40 oil with great results.

    oil change

    when my supercharger went out I needed to get all the oil out before I pulled the oil pump covers. I vac'd as much out as possible thru the dip stick tube. Then did the filter housing next took off the valve cover and went in along the chain. I got almost 4 quarts out. spilled next to nothing when I took the covers off.This seemed easier than cranking the engine several times and vac'ing it out.

    Can,t really beat Mobil 1 4T racing oil. Great for high RPM,s, racing, wet clutches, has a Jaso MA Rating.
    Change your oil right after you return from Skiing and the oil comes out real quick!!

    I've ran my boat for 3hrs straight at 7800-8000rpms on the Caloosahatchee river in southern FL with no problems at all on the stock oil recommendation non-synthetic.
