ATV Engine Oil, Lubes & Chemicals
ATV engine oil is the life-blood of your machine. Without it, bad bad things can go wrong. The same can be said if the wrong oil is used. Whether you run a 2 stroke or 4 stroke, you need to run oil that is specifically made for ATV’s. Standard motor oil cannot hold up to the high revs that wheelers put out and degrades far too easily. Match your performance demands to the type of base oil. Castor oil is good for light use. In-between riders can see a benefit from semi-synthetic or synthetic blends, while hard riders should look towards full synthetic engine oils.
ATV clutches and gear cases see a lot of abuse and need to be maintained. Fresh clutch oil will help to provide solid and positive clutch engagement with no slipping. It will also help prolong the life of your clutch plates in a wet clutch system. Heavy duty gear oil will keep your differential going strong, even during hard work and deep mud pits.
When the ride is done, be sure to keep your ATV maintained with grease, filter oil, fuel additives and cleaners. When all of your maintenance is done with the right chemicals and lubes, your machine will last for many years to come.
