Is it necessary to use factory Ski Doo chain case oil when replacing. I just drained my chain case and cleaned everything and it all looked pretty good. My questions is, Do I need to use Ski Doo chain case oil, or is there something else that I should use? Also, how much oil is required when re-filling. Thanks for the help guys and girls. Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

8.5 oz of fluid is what you need. Unless you have mechanical reverse, then it's 12 oz.

You can use whatever fluid you want. I've had good luck with Klotz Chaincase Lube, it's cheaper than the Doo stuff, and seems to work great.

I have friends that have used anything and everything you can think of -- transmission fluid, 80/90 gear lube, 10w30 motor oil, all without any problems.

Some folks use chaincase lube, and others use the 75W90 gear lube, which seems to be a popular (and cheaper) second choice. If you are interested in pricing, just pm me. :christmas:

97Mach1, Cam, and Klotzlubemn, thanks a bunch for the replies. I was beginning to wonder if anyone answers questions like mine. I'm not terribly new to the sport, but I am to my own maintenance and your replies all help me to get better. I ended up going with 8 oz of Arctic Blue synthetic chain case lubricant since I hadn't received any replies for a few days. I was told by another fellow friend/sledder that that's what he uses and has not had any problems. Doo wanted $20 for their bottle, I picked mine up for $9. Again, I sure appreciate you responding and look forward to learning as much as I can from all of you. Have a great season.

Again, I agree with dooman, Amsoil's syntetic chaincase oil I think is great, I always use that stuff. It costs $8.95 CDN at Royal. Why didn't 'Cam' with all of the amsoil banners on his post suggest this product instead of standard gear oil?

I simply stated what is available, and what some folks use as a first and second choice, in my experience. You can always pm me for more detailed information and pricing. BTW, my price to SW folks is considerably cheaper than what you paid at Royal. Check out the link in my sig if you like.

Cheers
