I have a 2017 Kawasaki Ultra LX Jet Ski (naturally aspirated) and I need to change the oil soon, the manual stated oil requirements are-
Kawasaki Performance 4-Stroke JET
SKIŽ Watercraft Oil*
Kawasaki Performance 4-Stroke
Semi-Synthetic Oil*
Kawasaki Performance 4-Stroke Full
Synthetic Oil*
or other 4-stroke oils with API SG,
SH, SJ, SL, SM and JASO MA, MA1,
MA2 rating
Viscosity: SAE10W-40

I have a bunch of Penzoil Ultra Platinum 0W-40 Full Synthetic left over from a truck that I got rid of and i was wondering if I would be able to use this oil in my JetSki? If not any recommendation other than the Kawasaki branded oil?

Thanks in advance!

I have a 2017 kawasaki Teryx.. probably close to the same engine.


Rotella 15w40 has all the specs you need and guys are getting 10s of thousands of miles with no issues.


Here is the VOA of the oil you listed

https://bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/3952093/Pennzoil_Platinum_Euro_0W-40_V

Perhaps you can mix this with the rotella and come up with a 10w40.

its the 1400cc engine, same as in the motorcycles i believe. So mix Rotella t6 and this 1/2 and 1/2 and that would work?

15w40 T4 and mix one quart of yours in each time would be a good brew.

Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 0W-40 + 1 qt T4 Rotella 15W-40 does sounds like a good brew for this. Maybe even 50/50

This would be my choice because of the increased levels of anti-corrosion, anti-rust additives:

damaging rust and corrosion. It protects engines during use and during inactivity or
long-term storage.

Plus you can buy T4 by the pail. (Don’t pay attention to this Canadian price.)

I would use the Penzoil 0W40 over any T6 in a N/A watercraft engine. You dont have a wet clutch like a motorcycle. You dont need the detergents in T6, as these engine never get sludged, and often have under 100 hours. You dont need the zero weight from the Penz, but it will do no harm, a watercraft engine gets no more moisture in the oil than the average car. Unless you regularly submerge it under water...I use Castrol 0W40 in my 155HP Seadoo and T6 in GTR because of the wet clutch supercharger

It's a 1500cc engine. And it's a peach of a motor!

mrnkc130- is the oil filter impossible to see on your Ultra, like it is on my 15f? I haven't changed it myself (extended warranty concludes this August), but I'm pretty sure lotsa folks remove the center storage tray to reach it more easily...

Run the 0w40 without mixing it. I have had Kawasaki jetskis with the 1500 for many years and I run Mobil 0w40, PP 0w40, Mobil turbo truck 5w40, Castrol 5w40 - they all are fine. I run these hard and trade them in every 5 years and they purr like the day I bought them at the end.
