As far as the crank or wrist pin bearings on any sled i always lubed them up real good with 2 stroke mineral oil.Hi all, I'm building my 800 CFI and the polaris tech manual says to use 2 stroke oil on crank and rod bearings. I would think you'd want something sticky there like isoflex. Any builders here that could help me decide?
I believe there is a Mobil alternative called Mobil 28 grease and another called Aeroshell 22 that are commonly used as cheaper alternatives.Thanks all! That isoflex shit is FUCKING expensive.
so your motor operates at 125 130 degrees how is that temp going to melt a grease that has a drop point of 450 500If it were me I'd oil everything up but I can't see how grease would hurt. Motor would heat up and the grease would melt off and oil would be on it right away. I can't see any damage to anything.
Pick your poison.
