2020 Skidoo Backcountry Xrs 850
Just picked up a 2019 Indy 850 with 700 miles. Owner is running Amsoil Interceptor oil. What oil is everyone running in the new 850 motor? Thanks!! Art:thumbsup:
So you're telling me the electronic oil pump is designed to run only Polaris oil because it is a specific viscosity? I find that hard to believe.Ves orange top or ves extreme white top. Not debating oil quality but electric pumps are metered for a known consistency of a manufacturers oil. (How thick it is at certain temps is the variable )
Correct. :thumbsup:Sort of. I’msayi g they have the metering of the oil pump set to provide X amount of oil at positions and that X amount of oil delivered was derived by using thier oil . A change in the oil could /will change the mount of metered oil. In fact I believe if you run extreme (thin) and the ves you will see an increase in consumption with the extreme.
Okay. maybe I shouldn't have assumed what type of pump/system it uses. I will look into the electric oil pump system used more thoroughly for my own knowledge bank. :thumbsup: Feed/supply can still be effected...I'll see.Exactly, if it's a positive displacement pump it moves same volume every time regardless of viscosity.
Exactly, if it's a positive displacement pump it moves same volume every time regardless
If this is so then why is more oil delivered with thinner oil and less with thicker ? At least it appears to work that way. I have t exactly measured it.and with that being said why do they make oil for low pour points if it flows the same. So maybe flows out of pump the same but not into pump the same? I Will Have to wait till nxt year now to actually test the results. I’m no pump expert so there could totally be something I’m missing here but I’m pretty sure it would vary.
