Reasons to use AMSOIL lubricants in your Snowmobile

Ski-Doo 850 Proof of Performance

Watch Video
Manufacturers are designing today's sleds to deliver unprecedented power and performance. So enthusiasts can push the boundaries even further. Some models use turbocharging to produce the eye-popping horsepower you crave, but turbos create intense heat and pressure that can create power rubbing deposits and engine wear with the potential to ruin your ride.
To test its performance we installed it in a turbo-charged Ski Doo 850 E-Tech Turbo R. We ran the engine for a simulated season of mountain riding and designed the test so the sled hit 4 PSI boost pressure even at sea level.
In these extreme conditions, deposits can form on the turbo bearing, pistons and exhaust power valves, reducing engine power. Afterward, we tore down the engine and examined the parts for deposits and wear.

Exceptional Low-Temperature Performance

Watch Video
Today’s two-stroke snowmobiles direct less oil to critical components, through narrower passages, for longer distances. Oils that thicken at cold temperatures are difficult to pump and can fail to protect components.
Four-stroke engines, meanwhile, are splash lubricated. Thick oil can cause difficult starts while failing to properly lubricate at startup, increasing engine wear.
AMSOIL synthetic snowmobile oils feature outstanding cold-flow properties for maximum engine protection in the coldest weather.

Prevents Exhaust Power Valve Sticking

Watch Video
Modern hot-running two-stroke snowmobiles can develop exhaust power valve deposits, which cause sticking and reduced performance.
AMSOIL synthetic two-stroke snowmobile oils are formulated with added detergency to keep power valves clean and moving freely for maximum performance.

Prevents Piston Scuffing

Watch Video
Today’s snowmobiles deliver increased power compared to their predecessors while producing fewer emissions and, in the case of two-strokes, using less oil. To guard against piston scuffing and wear, today’s sleds require robust oils capable of withstanding increased heat and friction.
AMSOIL synthetic snowmobile oils feature naturally tough film strength for outstanding piston protection.

Keeps Your Factory Warranty Intact

Watch Video
Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) want you to think you have to use the OEM-branded oil – which is typically more expensive – to provide your sled adequate protection. They also want you to think you have to use the OEM oil to comply with new-equipment warranty requirements.
It is illegal for a vehicle manufacturer to tie the warranty of its product to the use of the manufacturer’s own lubricant. In short, you have the freedom to choose whichever oil you think is best for your sled.
While snowmobile manufacturers may be experts at building sleds, none of them can match AMSOIL expertise when it comes to formulating synthetic two-stroke oils. AMSOIL synthetic snowmobile oils are Warranty Secure®, keeping your factory warranty intact. They’re outstanding choices for Polaris®, Ski-Doo®, Arctic Cat®, Yamaha® or other brands of sleds.

AMSOIL Runs on Freedom™ Limited Snowmobile Warranty

Don’t let the powersports manufacturers bully you into buying their brand of oil. In America, no one should tell you what to buy. You have the freedom to choose your brand of oil and keep your warranty intact.
To show our support for riders and to double-down on our confidence in our snowmobile oil, we offer the Runs on Freedom Limited Snowmobile Warranty.
Visit The Runs On Freedom page for limited-warranty terms & conditions and to register your sled.
It covers engine repairs for two years or 5,000 miles (8,000 km), whichever comes first, on current-model year or newer sleds that use AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil exclusively.

Adjusting the track on your snowmobile

Watch Video
Over time, your snowmobile track can stretch and loosen. Eventually you may hear loud clunking sounds and feel the sled shudder as the track’s drive lugs slip over the drive shaft – known as ratcheting.
This robs your sled of power and momentum. Not good if you plunge into deep powder or lay into the throttle to deadhead it across a lake.
Before you hit the trail or mountainside this season, make sure your track is properly tensioned. Check out this video from our experts to find out how.
