  1. Re: I will probably get shot or shunned for this question. 2 cycle and ratio?

    There's three types of two stroke oil

    1. Petroleum. It sucks, it has a ton of fine particulates in the oil, avoid it.

    Never gel coat a jet ski. Even if you get it to stick, after you spray it, it'll leave a massive orange peel you'll spend days sanding, and you'll never get it smooth in all the inside corners. I gel...

    They can wear out. I had a pretty huge gap on my SJ and replacing the wear ring helped a fair amount.
