I made the switch last year. I just opened up the oil top, sucked out what i could get with a hose, and filled it up with AMS!!! no problems.. Just to be sure though, i let it ideal for a while to try and burn all the old stuff out, so it wasen't the pistions weren't getten a mixture or syn. and non-syn at a high RPM... Don't take apart your lines.. then you might have to bleed your oil pump.. Good luck!
Amsoil is marvelous. Simply run your current oil low and top it off with amsoil. Just run the regualr amsoil injector oil, series 2000 is overkill.
My mechanic did several Ski-doo 800 twin piston recalls last year and noted that all of the engines that he did that ran amsoil had perfect cylinders. All of the others had scrapping on the lower half of the cylinders.
Go to their website www.amsoil.com & see if there is someone who sells it in your area. If nobody sells in your area, you can pay an annual fee to be a dealer. A couple of guys I know at work here, sell a bunch of oil in the fall & make enough to cover the fee.
They just do it themselves because nobody sells it where they live and know there's enough guys here that want it for their sleds.
When I switched to amsoil last season, I didn't even bother with draining the old oil, I just filled it up to the top at every stop. I read somewhere that it will mix with other oils, which is why I went the lazy way and just kept pouring in the amsoil.
What are others paying...last season I gave $100 for a case of 4 gallons shipped in,($25 a gallon) which seams about the going rate for the premium oils at the dealers. That is the Amsoil Series 2000 racing oil. I'm going to check into the dealer/customer preferred programs for next season and compare.
I've read somewhere before that someone adjsuted their fuel pump because the oil is so thin...has anyone else done this? WHat other adjustments are there? Does anyone use their gear lubes also? I had a customer who said the first thing he does with his trucks is pull all the factory fluids out (rearend, trans, radiator, etc) and replace them with AMSOIL. The stuff almost sounds too good to be true.
just added amsoil in my civic a month ago, and the engine run's more smoothely, the temperature droped about 20 degrees, more response from the engine, more top speed and got about 50 k's more on a fuel tank. I'm now running amsoil in everything (car, truck, dirt bike, 3 wheeler, snowmobile, lawnmoer, lawntractor, outboard motor, trimer.......)
P.S- I work at a dealer, so if anyone needs the oil, i will be glad to sell it to you. Snowmobilers price (My price)
