    Anyone running rotella t6 5-40 in their skis?

    It's what I use in my Honda Aquatrax and I have no issues. Wonder if anyone here uses it as well and how they find it runs in the SHO/HO?

    It would make it easier for oil changes if they all used the same too

    Thats exactly why I was using it in everything I had, cars trucks and in my skis!
    Then I read a post from the Green Hulk not to use synthetic oil in the Yamaha’s that have the clutches, that it would cause them to fail prematurely so I quit using it.
    IDK??? I’d rather use it then Yama-lube

    Could be true with some synthetics but the Rotella T6 holds a JASO-MA rating which is safe for wet clutch systems. I've been running it in all customer machines (including SC), my ATV, mower, tiller, old Jeep, etc for a few years now.

    I buy it by the case and run it in everything except my GP1800. It’s JASO-MA approved but Yamaha’s supercharger clutch isn’t any typical wet clutch like you would find in a motorcycle or dirt bike.

    I find it too risky to chance loosing a supercharger clutch so I just run the yamalube.

    It's all I use in all my ski's. I guess I'll be the guinea pig on clutch life. Have 20 hrs on GP, around 50 on the FX and 41 on the Ultra.

    Here’s the tread that changed my mind on rotella or any synthetic. Like I said in a previous reply I’d rather use rotella but oh well
