    Seadoo XPS Oil Differences

    I have a 1996 GSX that I'm bringing back to life. I was going to use the Seadoo XPS full synthetic for 2 strokes in it as I have cleaned the oiling system and that's what previous owner used in the that particular motor.

    I just this past weekend picked up a 1996 GTI. Going to get it up and running also. The previous owner used the Seadoo XPS mineral oil. He said it was serviced at the local Seadoo dealer and that's what they recommended.

    So my question is, are these oils the recommended oils for each model? Any chance both could use the XPS full synthetic or XPS mineral oil. I'd like to be able to buy just one type of oil and purchase in bulk.

    Your GSX is a 787 engine with exhaust RAVE valves. This engine you should run the XPS full synthetic as it has additives to keep the raves clean, and from sticking.

    Your GTi is a 720 engine, and does not have exhaust valves. This engine is fine with the mineral oil, but you could run the synthetic if you want.

    This is what I purchased for the 1996 GSX. They told me the yellow container has been phased out. This is XPS full synthetic for high performance carbureted engines.

    Zig is right on the money with his answer!

    I have the exact same make/model/years of skis that you have and I run full synthetic in both...
