If your ATV or Side by Side sees a lot of water crossings or mud bogs, we have a few products that can protect important components from water damage. Using a gear lube, grease, fuel additive and engine oil that are designed to neutralize the effects of moisture exposure can go a long way toward averting nasty repair bills.
Water Resistant Gear Lube for ATV Differentials
Whether your ATV’s differentials call for an SAE 80, 80W-90 or 75W-90, we have a gear lube that can cover all of those viscosities and withstand up to 10% water contamination. AMSOIL Universal Synthetic Marine 75W/80W-90 Gear Lube is suitable for applications requiring an API GL-4 or GL-5 product. Why use a marine gear lube in an ATV? This gear lube has same the extreme pressure (EP) additive content and protective abilities of gear lubes designed for dry land, but it is specifically formulated to withstand water contamination. Water can compromise a gear lube’s extreme pressure properties and promote foaming which can quickly lead to metal-to-metal contact. AMSOIL Universal Synthetic Marine Gear Lube not only reduces the risk of water damage, the synthetic formula delivers all-climate wear control of gears and bearings and also conditions seals to prevent leaks.
Water Resistant Grease for ATV’s
If your ATV has serviceable grease fittings on u-joints or suspension pivots, AMSOIL Synthetic Water Resistant Grease is our foremost grease recommendation, even if your machine rarely takes a dip. The sophisticated synthetic formula is fortified with extreme pressure additives and is suitable for general chassis, u-joint or wheel bearing service. When the going gets soggy, this grease resists water spray-off, complete submersion, mud, snow and ice. This grease stays put, no matter what you throw at it. For that reason we can’t imagine a better grease for ATV, snowmobile, marine or general-use around your yard.
Fuel Additive for ATV’s
Getting water in a differential or suspension pivot will cause problems over time, but getting moisture in your fuel can stop you in your tracks. While it’s unlikely that water can enter your fuel tank during a trail ride, you can’t always be sure about fuel sources along the way. The ethanol content of gasoline absorbs moisture and can cause a severe lean condition when it makes its way into the combustion chamber. It can also cause gumming and depositing. AMSOIL Quickshot Powersport Fuel Additive neutralizes moisture in fuel, allowing it to pass harmlessly through the engine. Quickshot also cleans out existing carb or injector deposits as well as those in the combustion chamber. It even stabilizes gasoline between rides. Quickshot is highly beneficial in any small engine or gasoline-powered toy.
ATV Engine Oil
If moisture makes it’s way into your engine, rust and corrosion can form over time. AMSOIL Synthetic ATV & Motorcycle Oils borrow anti-corrosion additive technology from their marine engine oils to protect engine internals from corrosion damage between rides and during long-term storage. AMSOIL Synthetic ATV Oils also offer benefits such as lower friction, reduced wear, cooler operation and improved start-up protection in any climate. Available in 0W-40, 10W-30, 10W-40, 20W-50 and SAE 60.
