Amsoil?

Recommended Posts

I know this was talked about but I can't find it. I have an 08 Sportsman 800ho. It uses 5w-50 oil. Popo wants $37 for there kit. 2qts and a filter. Oilman or anyone else can you help me out? Amsoil site doesn't really say what to use. I use Amsoil 0w40 in my 01 500.

Thanks, Keith

They don't have a wet clutch like a motorcycle but they have a wet clutch it is a shoe type. you will need a oil for a ctv transmission

Sorry but your completely wrong. The primary and secondary clutch assemblies do not require any oil in the cvt housing.

Try it I bet you get some belt slippage.

they have a clutch inside the crankcase that is what drives the two clutches the works with the belt.

Please show us a schematic of this clutching system. I'd love to see it. grin

The schematics don't show all three clutches together.

Why do you think all the manufactures recommend to use motor oil for a wet clutch.

This is a link to the Polaris microfiche. The same one anydealer uses. Note that when you select a certain schematic, you can find out what all models use those parts if you click "usage" to the right of the part description. Polaris Industries Microfiche

If this 3rd clutch does exist you will find it here.

With that said I have taken apart and tested several after market polaris clutch kits. From springs, weights, buttons, secondary rollers, EBS, non EBS I know the science behind these clutches. I have worked with, tested and even been sponsored by aftermarket companies. I have personally used components from (HSP, HPD, AAEN, TEAM etc) that specialize in CVT performance upgrades. Non of these folks have ever referenced this wet clutch you speak of. Nor have they suggest using oil for my clutches. In fact neither of the 2 manuals have suggest it or maintenance or repair.

Now that I think of it, are you thinking of just straight up transmission fluid? yes its needed but there is no clutch, its simply just sprockets and chains and a sealed unit completely seperate from the CVT but is driven by the secondary clutch.

I think he's talking about the clutch found in Suzuki's, Yamaha's and "some" of the newer Polaris machines. However, the '08 SP 800 HO has the same old tranny they've always had.

This is a view of a Suzuki KQ750 and yes it does have the clutch assembly (shoe) like he's referring to (bottom center of the photo).

Here is the correct Amsoil engine oil to use:

AFF Formula 4 Stroke Powersports 0W-40

EA15K13 Amsoil filter (double check the p/n)

    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
