Routine maintenance on your SXS is crucial. It is not only important for the health of the rig, but it also keeps your investment running at its best. Top of the list for routine maintenance after air filter and CVT belt inspection is an oil change on regular intervals.
There are lots of options out there when it comes to oils these days, but I like to use an oil that is specifically designed for today’s high performance UTV / SxS vehicles. That’s why I was intrigued by the new products from Lucas Oil.
After years of blending superior oils for the racing industry, Lucas Oil Products, has released a new Synthetic 4-Stroke SxS Engine Oil as part of the company’s new line of off-road specific performance lubricants. Designed specifically for use in Side-by-Side (SxS) off-road vehicles, this new synthetic SxS lubricant uses Lucas’ race-proven engine oil formulation to protect vital engine components in all riding conditions. Lucas Synthetic 4-Stroke SxS Engine Oil is available in one-quart and one-gallon containers and five different viscosity grades (SAE 0W-40, SAE 5W-50, SAE 10W-30, SAE 10W-40 and SAE 10W-50).
In addition, Lucas SxS Multi-Purpose Gearcase and Differential Fluid is a great choice for servicing your differential fluid. It is blended from premium synthetic base oils only (API Groups III, IV & V), combined with shear stable synthetic polymers, a high-quality additive package that include anti-wear, anti-oxidants and corrosion inhibitors to produce a truly superior multi-purpose SxS lubricant, suitable for the transmission/gearcase, front and rear differentials of most SxS, UTV and ATV available today, including those made by Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Can-Am and Suzuki.
And if you want to keep your ride looking sharp, Lucas has you covered for that as well. The Lucas Slick Mist Detailing Kit has everything needed to make your vehicle showroom ready.
Lucas Oil Products was started in 1989 with the simple philosophy of producing the best line of lubricants and additives available anywhere. They believe in that philosophy and still produce the finest oil products available in the world today. More information can be found on their website at: www.lucasoil.com.
