Amen, we need rain too. Any precip will be good, as we all know the snow will melt. I think I posted my first sled ride around the yard last year on October 20th! That was the earliest I had thrown a leg over. And loved every second. I was so excited, I could hardly speak to the camera!!

I’m going with conventional Yama lube for the boat and synthetic Yamalube for the Waverunners. I use 87 octane fuel in the boat and 93 in the skis already, so I treat the oil the same way. The order of my favorite toys is changing. All of them will get new iridiums soon as well. Just picked up the k & n oil filters.

Sounds good except the K&N oil filters…I’m not crumbing on you… IMHO those are the worst oil filters you can get. Can you return them ? Have a look on youtube about oil filter testing.

I’m pretty sure that these will not fit your motors but I got these from amazon for my boat, I’m sure you can find the correct oil filters on amazon for your craft.


I also bought these from Amsoil.
