New Snowmobile Application Tool for AMSOIL Products Released

AMSOIL has released a new online application guide that can help you find the correct AMSOIL synthetic oil and related product information for your snowmobile. It covers Arctic Cat, Ski-Doo, Polaris and Yamaha models from today and back to the 1990′s.

Test out the AMSOIL Snowmobile Product Application Guide

Enter the year, make and model into the guide and it will provide you with following information, specific to your model.

  • AMSOIL synthetic two or four-stroke engine oil
  • AMSOIL chaincase fluid
  • Engine coolant
  • The service life of the fluids for your application
  • Oil filter part # (for four-stroke engines)
  • NGK spark plug or wire-set part numbers
  • Fuel capacity

Amsoil also provides and updates extensive application guides and cross reference tools for auto & light truck, motorcycle, ATV, marine and more.

These are great tools to help you to discover and research the fluids and specifications required for your equipment. As always though the main source of information should be your owners manual.

Fall Maintenance

The leaves turning, nights getting cooler and mornings crisper is a signal that the seasons are changing. It’s time to start thinking about putting away summer equipment while looking over any winter gear that may need some work before the snow flies. Don’t forget to maintain those daily drivers to help them make it through another winter.

The fall is the perfect time to change the oil on your daily driver if you’re on an extended 6-month/15,000-km schedule using either the Signature Series or the XL Series from the 3 tiers of AMSOIL engine oils. Our 2005 Vibe was changed last weekend and is now good until May of 2013 or 20,000-kms.

I think it’s too soon to put the bikes away but those early morning starts without synthetics in the crank case may become a bit more harsh. Try one of the AMSOIL motorcycle oils to help with extream temperatures like cold starts and hot idling in the heat of the summer. In my opinon fresh oil is the best way to store any piece of equipment/vehicle. AMSOIL motorcycle oils have excellent anti-corrosion additives that lesser oils may be lacking.

How do you remember what needs to be done? Especally if you’re maintaining the equipment for an entire house, family or small fleet?

Ready To Go Fishing?

Here in my part of Southern Ontario the sport fishing season is starting to open up soon.

People are already getting their boats on the water for perch and crappie. Trout opens today, walleye and pike open in mid-May and then bass and muskies open later in June of 2012. Check your local fishing regulations and be careful which zone you are fishing in – I can be inland or out on the Great Lakes which changes dates and locations.

Spring Has Sprung

I’m not a meteorologist but all of a sudden we seemed to skip spring as temperatures soared over 25°C last week. My poor winter tires must have been sweating with the summer like temperatures on Thursday – I swapped them out this morning.

When the weather starts to warm up people start getting out their equipment. Boats are being uncovered as fishermen tighten their lines on some catfish in Dunville and rainbows in Grimsby. Everything seems to be early this year with our lack of snow and ice in Southern Ontario the water surface temperatures are already at spring levels.

I’ve had lots of calls about Motorcycle oil last week.
20W-50 MCV and 10W-40 MCF are in stock and ready to be picked up in Mississauga so you can install it in your bike this weekend. Don’t forget a bottle of Quickshot to stabilize and clean your fuel system. EA Motorcycle filters are available but I don’t stock them and will pick up filters Thursdays on my weekly trip to the warehouse.

If you need some AMSOIL products to get your equipment ready this spring give me a call – I’d be happy to give product recommendations for your specific equipment.

AMSOIL Marine Products

I spent last weekend up north watching boats cruise by – some were towing skiers and tubes behind them others just out to visit friends at another dock. Fisherman weren’t to be seen on our section of the lake as it was far to warm in the bay – nothing but rock bass to tease with worms below us in the cribs of the dock.

How many hours do you have on your motor this season? Have a listen the next time you try to start your engine on a really cold morning? Could it be better by replacing your lower gear oil with a synthetic?

You can count on the AMSOIL marine products used in your boat with proper maintenance to keep it running strong on the water and away from the marina repair shop during the season.

Read on for AMSOIL product applications and suggestions.
