    1993 750 SX: 2 Stroke Oil Recommendation

    Fellow 2 strokers, I just purchased 2 1993 750 SX skis for me and my son. I'm new to Jetskis and specially new to these higher horsepower 2 strokes (especially of this age). I did ask the previous owner what 2 stroke oil he used and he recommended a Pennzoil Marine Premium Plus oil (I think because it was readily available at Walmart). How important is the oil selection and should I be running something else? Something more geared to better burn and protecting these older motors?

    I will say, the skis run very good, plugs look good and they don't smoke a ton once warmed up and on the water. Simply reading the label on the Pennzoil produce it looks like its geared toward 2 stroke outboards, at the end of the day its a 2 stroke.

    If it matters I ride in the Northeast, primarily fresh water in the PA area.

    I expect you'll get a lot of different answers. I like Maxima products, especially Castor 927. It's costly but offers outstanding wear protection. Super M is another popular Maxima product.
    I'll quit before I sit~~~

    My first ski was a 93 750 new from the kawi dealer. Iíve ran a bunch of oils and some will take the slightest amount of power. This is from the point of when the oil burns off. And hence why youíll get everyone saying one certain oil is better. If you are recreational ridding youíll really never feel the difference.
    Every motor, rider and environment plays a factor. Youíll be fine using the pennzoil.
    I personally use valvoline and Lucas. Iíve never seen a failure due to type of oil just lack of oil!

    Use any TCW3 oil. Corrosion is the biggest killer of PWC engines and cheap TCW3 has the best protection for that. From there Maxima Super M is good for high performance marine use and economical if purchased in 5gal pails. Anything more expensive than that is for racing and have little corrosion protection.
