Do all new cases have the oil channel and spot where to drill cast from factory too?
Been doing the pump shaft oil channel mod to all my older 600:s, I honestly don't get why this is not done from factory
Didn't look for it on the 800 pro when I replaced the pistons as I didn't have the time to split the cases anyways..

The older ones(pre 03)were less prone to wear because they ran 6start gears.The newer sleds run 10start so they dont overheat at lower engine speeds.Unfortunately,increasing the water pump speed also greatly increased the bronze gear wear.

Still it helps to use a good 2 stroke oil. All the ones i've seen that failed under 6000 miles were run with crap oil.

Probably plenty of common sense in the engineering dept, perhaps driven by the bean-counters and management.

I have a question and it's not meant to start a pissing contest...just wondering for my own sanity.

What do you guys consider cheap or crappy 2 stroke oil? I have used Amsoil for years. I'm not a high mileage guy, probably less than average by many measures. My buddy has run Amsoil in his last 3 sleds and has had zero issues with up to 7k on his last Edge 600.

With the pump gear issues being mentioned in this thread...this ain't good news for the guys who are putting 1-2k miles a year on...like my buddy.

Ive said this before but.....I wouldnt put amsoil in my sled to drive it to the junkyard.If you take an engine apart that has run interceptor the crankshaft will be dry as a bone and the rods are probably blue.

This....you'd be better off running a cheaper mineral oil than this stuff.

So what have you seen go wrong because of Amsoil, and what do you consider to be the best 2 stroke oil to be?

Yeah on second thought never mind...I can do a search and probably read years of back and forth over which oil is best. I don't need to hijack this thread.
