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?

4-Stroke® PowerSports Synthetic Motor Oil

AMSOIL riders know few products compare to the AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke® PowerSports (AFF) Synthetic Motor Oil.

Its 0W viscosity rating and ultra-low -60°F pour point offer maximum cold-weather protection, ensuring easy cranking, excellent cold starts on frigid winter mornings and quick post-startup protection. It also provides superior wear protection due to high levels of anti-wear additives that protect pistons and bearings, while its SAE 40 viscosity delivers a strong lubricating film for excellent protection in hard-working engines.

An issue affecting many hard-charging sleds is oil foaming. When engines reach high RPMs, churning engine parts can cause the oil to foam, inhibiting the oil’s lubricating ability, increasing heat and wear. AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Power Sports Synthetic Motor Oil inhibits foam for maximum performance and protection.

Ideal for your four-stroke sled, this product also provides superior protection for ATV’s, UTV’s and other powersports applications.

AMSOIL Snowmobile Outfitters Deal

Looking to get outfitted with AMSOIL products for this snowmobile season?
We haven’t seen much snow flying here in Southern Ontario but do expect it to come soon enough – hopefully early in 2012.

I’m offering a outfitting deal where you purchase these two items together in the same cart on amsoil.com and I’ll throw in a 8oz bottle of QuickShot for you to try in your first tank of fuel but you have to pay the shipping costs.

  1. Sign up as a Preferred Customer for a 6-month trial membership
  2. Purchase a case of snowmobile oil

By signing up as a Preferred Customer – even without the bottle of QuickShot to sweeten the deal – you’ll save on your first order. At the current AMSOIL pricing if you were to purchase a case of AIT Interceptor with the $15 membership fee – you still save $21.60 over the suggested retail price in Canada. You’ll save even more on your next case or by purchasing other AMSOIL products for your other equipment as you won’t have the PC membership overhead.

Contact me for details and to work out any shipping costs for your bottle of QuickShot.
