The best oil for your Pocket Bike, Dirt Bike, ATV

Posted by Tim Technical Support Specialist on

IT’S all about THE LubE!

Welcome to this week’s tech talk at Venom Motorsports!

A few of you have written with concerns about “breaking in your new bike engine” and which oil to use...so in this week’s blog we are going to tackle both subjects.

Please click on our excellent Amsoil “Lubrication” video links below for more information.

Keep in mind that this information applies to all of our excellent gas powered Super Pocket Bikes, Dirt Bikes and ATVs!

Ok, onto this week’s topics;

Tim...What does the term “break in period” mean?

“Break in period” is a term that refers to the wearing in of mating parts in any mechanical assembly. Initially there is always going to be some wear on the parts in a mechanical assembly, this is true for all the toys we love. ATVs, bikes, scooters, cars, boats...basically anything with an internal combustion engine has a break in period. The “break in period” will also vary with the type of device we are discussing.

As a Mechanical Engineer with many years of experience it is my opinion that this wearing in period is very normal and occurs in all internal combustion engines.

Some manufactures will try to tell you that a “break in period” is no longer required as our advances in manufacturing are so high tech. I thank them for their thoughts on the subject and still follow my own “break in period” advice and share that with you.

So, in my opinion the “break in period” of our ATVs and bikes typically occurs during the first 25 hours of operation.

Like you, I enjoy my toys and have used my “break in period” system for many years. To date I have never suffered an engine failure...knock on wood!!!

My break in technique is really very simple. Before starting your new bike check the lube oil level with the engine dip stick and ensure that it is full. Then drive your bike gently for the first 25 hours of operation. Never hold the same engine rpm or speed for an extended period of time. Speed up and slow down often, change the speed gently, no heavy throttle moves.

In other words...No flat out high speeds for the first 25 hours of operation!

Don’t ride it...like ya stole it.LOL. You get the idea right?

After the first 5 hours of operation, change the oil and use the Amsoil premium oil that Venom Motorsport has included with your bike for that very important first oil change.

In the spirit of the Holiday season this is a special gift from Moose! What a nice guy!

This Amsoil premium oil provides the best possible engine protection available and we hope you will continue to use it for each oil change in the future. This will ensure that your “toys” work well for many years.

These Amsoil premium engine oils are available for your Bike, ATV or Scooter online at our web site https://www.venommotorsportscanada.com/. Your baby is worth it!

Tim...How often should I change the engine oil in my Venom Bike or ATV?

This is a bit of a tricky question...

Generally speaking, I recommend that you change your engine oil each Spring before your first ride of the season.

If you have an extended driving season Spring, Summer, and Fall then two engine oil changes are in order. One in the Spring and one mid Summer.

If you drive your vehicle hard, then again two engine oil changes are in order. One oil change in the Spring and one mid Summer.

The overall consideration to think about when considering an oil change is the amount of discolouration or darkness in colour you see in your engine oil.

Your oil should always look clean. If your engine oil is dark, hazy or has visible metal particles in it, change it immediately.

Engine oil is the life blood of your engine. Clean oil performs better keeping your engine lubricated, cool and shifting well!

Tim...What oil do you recommend for my Four Stroke Super Pocket bike?

Reduces Friction, Heat and Wear
In high heat conditions, AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil exceeds the standard for high-temperature film strength to deliver excellent wear protection. It keeps engines running cool by effectively reducing friction and heat, and it contains a heavy treatment of anti-wear additives to reduce wear regardless of operating conditions. AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil is thermally (heat) stable and contains maximum levels of oxidation-inhibitor additives. It is extremely resistant to volatility and is engineered to prevent damaging sludge and carbon deposits for superior engine cleanliness.

 

Smooth, Confident Shifts
AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil contains no friction modifiers and promotes smooth shifting and positive clutch engagement. It is engineered to control heat and prevent slippage and glazing, promoting longer clutch life.

 

Controls Foam
High-rpm operation causes some motor oils to foam. When foam bubbles travel between gear teeth or engine components, they collapse, allowing metal surfaces to contact, causing wear. AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil contains advanced anti-foam additives that help prevent foam, allowing riders to confidently push their bikes to the limit. GL-1 • API SG, SL/CF • JASO MA/MA2

  • Premiumwear protection
  • Smooth,confident shifts
  • Cool, cleanperformance

 

Delivers Superior Rust and Corrosion protection
Motorcycles are prone to rust from storage, humidity and short drives. Rust can cause major damage, such as uncontrolled wear, compression loss and blow-by. Good rust protection, however, comes by design and is not natural to motor oils. Unlike many motorcycle oils, AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil contains special anti-rust agents that deliver superior rust protection. With its high 11.1 total base number (TBN), AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil provides greater protection from acid corrosion and helps maintain internal engine cleanliness.

 

APPLICATIONS
AMSOIL 10W-40 Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil is engineered for motorcycles that require 10W-40 motorcycle oil, including those made by Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Triumph, Can-Am and BMW.* Recommended for transmissions requiring an API GL-1 fluid. Not recommended where an API GL-4 or GL-5 gear oil is required.

 

SERVICE LIFE
Recommended for use up to twice the motorcycle manufacturer-recommended change interval (miles/hours) or one year, whichever comes first, in engines and transmissions. When using an oil filter other than AMSOIL Ea® Motorcycle Oil Filter, change the filter at standard intervals. Racing or modified engines are excluded from extended drain interval recommendations; oil changes are at the owner's discretion.

Tim...What oil do you recommend for my Four Stroke ATV?

10W-40 Synthetic ATV/UTV Engine Oil from Amsoil.

 

AMSOIL synthetic technology protects hot, high-revving engines against wear. AMSOIL Synthetic ATV/UTV Motor Oil is Warranty Secure™ and will not void your ATV or UTV warranty. It is a cost-effective, high-performance alternative to original equipment manufacturer (OEM) fluids.

Severe-Service Engine Protection
Many enthusiasts modify their ATVs or UTVs with roof and door panels, skid plates, a winch, a plow or other accessories that add weight and increase the severity of operation. Aggressive riding and tackling tough terrain place additional stress on the engine. Increased heat generated during severe-duty operation causes oils designed for standard service to break down sooner, increasing the risk for wear. AMSOIL Synthetic ATV/UTV Motor Oil’s synthetic technology delivers reserve protection against heat. It provides reliable wear protection and aids in cooling shrouded engines.

 

Confidence in Clutch Feel
AMSOIL 10W-40 Synthetic ATV/UTV Motor Oil's superior friction-durability properties help minimize clutch slippage, fade and chatter, giving riders consistent clutch feel during takeoffs or when manoeuvring around obstacles on the trail.

Tim...What oil do you recommend for my Two Stroke bike or ATV?

DOMINATOR® Synthetic 2-Stroke Racing Oil from Amsoil.

Racers can't win what they don’t finish. That’s why AMSOIL formulators built DOMINATOR® 2-Stroke Racing Oil. This complex blend of oils and additives directly addresses the heat, pressure and friction of race-engineered engines. These engines operate on the edge, yet engine reliability is critical. DOMINATOR does an outstanding job protecting high-performance engines. It adds durability that professional racing teams depend on and delivers confidence so engines can be pushed to the limit.

Excellent Lubricity and Film Strength
High-performance and race-designed two-stroke engines operate under severe conditions. They are modified for higher compression ratios, higher rpm and leaner combustion, all of which increase heat and pressure. High heat can quickly burn off light oils and cause rapid piston expansion, decreasing piston-to-cylinder wall clearances and increasing the likelihood of piston scuffing and seizure. High pressure can exceed the film strength of low-viscosity oils, which promotes crankshaft bearing wear and pitting.

DOMINATOR is purpose-built for outstanding film strength and lubricity. It is engineered with carefully selected, higher-viscosity synthetic base oils to withstand the high heat and pressure common to high-performance and racing applications. DOMINATOR’s anti-friction chemistry is race-proven to provide an extra measure of protection against piston scuffing and bearing wear.

Outstanding Cleanliness
The oil and fuel burned in the two-stroke combustion process leave destructive deposits on the pistons, rings and in the combustion chamber. Excessive deposits can lead to catastrophic engine problems, including ring sticking, exhaust port blocking and pre-ignition.

  • AMSOIL DOMINATOR is formulated with clean-burning synthetic base oils and powerful high-temperature detergent additives for exceptional deposit control. It helps prevent the power-robbing carbon deposits that cause ring sticking, exhaust port blocking and pre-ignition. AMSOIL DOMINATOR is optimized for severe service.
  • RACING IS RESEARCH™
    During the opening weekend of the 2015/16 AMSOIL Championship Snocross season, professional rider Lincoln Lemieux's Ski-Doo* RS600 suffered a broken hose clamp, allowing the coolant to pump from the system. The intense heat that resulted melted the exhaust power valve covers, O-rings and engine gaskets. DOMINATOR Synthetic 2-Stroke Racing Oil, however, delivered exceptional protection despite the severe conditions. The rings and pistons were still free and the crankshaft turned freely. Scheuring Speed Sports is able to reuse the engine after repairing the melted parts, providing concrete testimony of DOMINATOR's superior performance.
  • Applications
    Use in high-performance stock or modified two-stroke engines, including air- or liquid-cooled snowmobiles, personal watercraft, motorstrokes (moto X), ATVs, go-carts and outboard motors**. Good for use with coated or non-coated pistons, high-octane racing fuels and exhaust power valves. Compatible with most other two-stroke oils; however, mixing oils should be minimized.
  • Use in oil-injected and pre-mix applications that require API TC oils. In pre-mix applications, DOMINATOR delivers outstanding protection at 50:1 (2.6 oz. oil per U.S. gallon of gas), although many racers modify the mix ratio to suit their setup. Not suitable for use with alcohol or nitro-methane fuels.
  • ** Not suitable for long-term use in outboard motors as a TC-W3-type oil, although excellent as a race oil for short-term use where motors are periodically inspected.
  • WARRANTY SECURE®
    DOMINATOR Synthetic 2-Stroke Racing Oil is Warranty Secure, keeping your factory warranty intact. DOMINATOR Synthetic 2-Stroke Racing Oil is a high-performance replacement for vehicle manufacturer-branded products and is also backed by the AMSOIL Limited Warranty (G1363).
