I was wondering if AC has different kind of oil for the Firecats?
Polaris has several types.....Im new to Arctic Cat

there is one dealer here and it's mainly a grocery store... and they only carry one type.

what is the oil I need to get..? and mixing 100:1 is that 26oz per 5 gallons? It doesn't say on the gallon container.
Thanks

they say 100:1 is better for the smart valves (they clog with too much oil). A pint in a full tank is better.

According to Arctic Cat you have to use AC APV oil only because of the power valves. I'm sure there are other oils just as good if not better but I'm not taking any chances as far as warranty goes for the first year and using APV.

Just my opinion.

12.6 gallon tank= 1612.80oz x .01 =16.13 oz or 1 pint

I've been using TORCO full synthetic since my '99 sno pro with the old pressure activated exhaust valves. I still have the sled and cleaning is the best with this oil.

I have not put on many miles with my Firecat and CAT'S "NEW" sythetic APV oil.

Therefore I do not know the ammount of carbon deposits yet.

Anyone else???

GO WITH klotz! One of my buddies works at a cat dealership and works on all kinds of sleds. He said when he takes the motors apart the sled that runs klots has the cleanest motor, even cleaner than amsoil. I will stick with him he has been doing this for 20 yrs or so.
