    Svho clutch life on amsoil synthetic vs yamalube

    So my clutch on my deans stage 2 tune 2016 fx svho took a dump. 113 total hours on ski. First 75hrs I used all amsoil 10w40 synthetic before clutch went. Then switched over to yamalube after reading some threads here about clutch life on yamalube and switched back at 75 hrs. Now with less than 40 hrs it went again. Thinking of going back to amsoil synthetic after I install another clutch in the fx svho.

    It will not matter. The clutches now are crap. Good luck.

    Thats kind of what I am hearing. I am still thinking of going back to amsoil again since I rode a hard 75hrs on my first clutch. After I switched back to yamalube I didn't really ride as hard and it still crapped out at 40 hrs use.

    Do you run your machine and tap or hit the throttle on the trailer to get rid of water a lot?

    I haven't tried a 2021 clutch yet but just ordered one. I don't tap the throttle when on the trailer either.

    My old ski used to go through clutches constantly, when I switched to Amsoil 10w-40 marine, they lasted much much longer. Instead of 20 hours they last over 100.

    I know they say these clutches need friction and yamalube is the best but its weird that I got 75hrs on my amsoil first clutch and I ride extremely hard. I do have a 2020 fx svho that just hit 50 hrs on yamalube still on its first clutch.
