A reader asks: “I’ve got a 2013 Can-Am Renegade 800R and wish to switch it completely to synthetic oil. Which AMSOIL products can you supply for my ATV?”
Reply: Oildepot has a full suite of synthetic oils that can replace the factory BRP XPS oils at a better price. Maximize the performance and prolong the life of every component on your Renegade.
Engine: AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Synthetic 0W-40 is a direct replacement for BRP’s XPS 4-Stroke Synthetic All Climate Grade Oil and XPS 4-Stroke Semi-Synthetic Summer Grade Oil. AMSOIL’s incomparable synthetic 0W-40 formula withstands extreme summer heat and still pours down to -51°C for perfect operation on any day of the year. Reduced friction and wet-clutch compatibility make this product the complete package for any ATV. Change AMSOIL 0W-40 once per year or after 100 hours of service, whichever comes first.
Gearbox: Our specific recommendation for the Can-Am Renegade 800 gearbox is the AMSOIL Severe Gear 75W-140 Synthetic Gear Oil. Can-Am requires an API “GL-5” 75W-140 gear lube for the gearbox, making Severe Gear Synthetic 75W-140 a direct replacement for XPS SAE 75W-140 Synthetic Gear Oil. Severe Gear provides an upgrade to the XPS product at a far better price. Severe Gear 75W-140 combats heat and wear and still pours down to -46°C for fantastic cold weather performance. Change Severe Gear 75W-140 in Renegade gearboxes annually or at 100 hours (whichever comes first).
Front Differential: The Renegade 800 requires the use of 75W-90 gear lube with the API GL-5 specification. We offer AMSOIL Severe Gear 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Oil for this component. Severe Gear 75W-90 is a direct substitute for XPS SAE 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Oil for ATVs at a far better price. Severe Gear 75W-90 is a top-flight synthetic that withstands extreme heat and heavy shock-loads and pours down to -48°C in the winter. Change Severe Gear in the Renegade front differential every two years or after 200 hours of operation (whichever comes first).
Rear Differential: The rear differential of the Renegade 800 requires the same type of 75W-140 gear oil as is used in the gearbox. AMSOIL Severe Gear 75W-140 Synthetic Gear Oil provides outstanding performance and ironclad protection in this application. Change the rear differential oil every two seasons or every 200 hours, whichever comes first.
Grease for Chassis, Suspension, U-Joint: Your Renegade has numerous grease points on the A-arms, drive shaft u-joints and sway bars, so it’s vital to go through your machine at the interval specified by BRP. The ideal grease would be water-proof, tenacious and suitable for summer heat and winter cold. Oildepot offers a synthetic grease that perfectly fits that bill. The AMSOIL Synthetic Water Resistant Grease protects components from wear and rust while reducing friction for maximum performance. Whether or not your Can-Am sees regular water crossings and mud bogs, this grease is perfect for any ATV.
Regular upkeep of your ATV with these synthetic products from Oildepot will keep your Can-Am in fighting shape for many seasons to come.
