    SeaDoo recommends synthetic, low ash (non TCW-3) oil.

    My manual here says SD reccomends the Mineral Oil on the 787's. The 951's and above, the required the Synth.

    But, you can run either in the 787's.

    I have never seen a Sea Doo manual recommend anything but the XP-S synthetic oil for a 97 XP.

    Here is a clip from a 1997 Xp owners manual:



    SPX/GSX/GTX/XP Models Only




    Use only BOMBARDIER ROTAX FORMULA


    XP-S synthetic injection oil (or
    the equivalent synthetic oil).
    This fully synthetic oil will provide outstanding
    cleanliness, less friction and
    wear for greater engine performance
    and durability.
    Oil Injection System
    This watercraft features an oil injection
    system which does not require
    manual fuel/oil mixing.
    A sufficient amount of injection oil
    should be maintained in the reservoir.
    NOTE: Always carry 500 mL of
    BOMBARDIER ROTAX INJECTION
    OIL.
    All Models Except HX/XP
    To check oil level, remove seat to expose
    oil cap; unscrew cap, wipe dipstick
    then insert in the reservoir neck.
    Do not screw cap. Remove dipstick
    and read the level.
    Use a flexible funnel to add the required
    quantity of injection oil. Wipe
    off any oil spillage.
    HX/XP Models Only
    To check oil level, open hood and verify
    level through oil reservoir. Unscrew
    cap to add oil as necessary.
    Use a flexible funnel to add the required
    quantity of injection oil. Wipe
    off any oil spillage.
    All Models
    - CAUTION
    Never use 4-cycle petroleum or
    synthetic motor oil and never mix
    these with outboard motor oil.
    Do not use NMMA TC-W, TC-W2
    or TC-W3 outboard motor oils or
    other ashless type 2-cycle oil.
    Avoid mixing different brands of
    API TC oil as resulting chemical
    reaction may cause severe engine
    damage.
    - CAUTION
    The 787 engine requires the use
    of Bombardier Rotax Formula
    XP-S SYNTHETIC injection oil (or
    the equivalent synthetic oil). The
    use of any other non-synthetic oil
    may cause severe damage to internal
    parts of the engine.



    CAUTION


    Always maintain a sufficient
    amount of injection oil in the
    reservoir. Check and refill every
    time you refuel. Do not overfill.
    the engine runs out of oil, severe
    engine damage will occur. If the
    oil reservoir is found almost
    empty, air can enter in the system
    and it must be bled. Immediately
    refer to an authorized dealer
    have the oil injection system inspected.

    That was revised in the 1998 manual to only say 947.

    The 587, 657, 717 & 787 only require regular. Use of synthetic in a 787 however will keep the RAVE valves cleaner a lot longer, and it is recommended.

    Sea-Doo routinely updates specs like that. Another example was the switch from synthetic to regular for the supercharged models after the first year, via a service bulletin.

    I know what you mean about Sea Doo always changing things. Good point about the update. Still, I always recommend Synthetic for 787's and up (two stroke).

    Thanks. :emoticonb

    Never a bad call for a 2 stroke :)

    Another good reason to run Synth, is that they are no longer making the Mineral, what you see on the shelf is it..
