    The problem with Klotz and others is they take on water but it seems that Only causes a problem when storing or when not using for long periods of time. I used Klots in all my Big bore snowmobile motors but when I stored for the summer I fogged with regular oil. I have had good luck with Injex By phillips 66 too

    I know some who use Injex...It's good stuff as well. I just don't like the smell.

    Hey,, this past summer I used R-50 racing by klotz and when I checked the valves out on my Pro, they had a super thin coat of color on them and weren't bad at all. So far I like the way it is working.. I'll have to pay attention to the storage thing if not used for a few weeks to prevent any rusting on the webs. Great info, thanks,, I'll have to look for the sea and snow stuff around here. would that be ok for the Pro785 ? I dont cruise on it.lol

    Good read.
    Hey Nut,
    Any real world input on the Ledgend Oil? I figure with all the sledding you and your buds do, someone you know must have tried it! lol...

    Injex was always my favorite dino oil. Ran great, engines always looked like new, and actually seemed to treat exhaust valves fairly Back in the day, I actually switched from Klotz to Injex.

    Art,

    I've actually met the owner of Legend a few times. He's a fellow Michigander. You should hear his sales pitch on it haha. It is good oil though...Ran clean and no smoke, and didn't smell like burning plastic. A few years back, there was quite a following with it. I even ran a few gallons through my sled, before I found the Citgo S&S, that I run now. I would have continued using it, but it was pricey, and harder for me to get if I ran out mid season.

    As above, You can't find Legend anywhere without ordering it. and it is actually very rarely used/ almost unheard of in the sled industry.

    With sleds, I like running any decent oil that is easy to find at any location. Stock OEM oils, or Amsoil are about the only choices if you go that route. I'm trying Amsoil interceptor for the first time, and if i dont like it, i'll likely end up going with Polaris semi-syn in the future. I LOVE Injex, but it's getting very hard for me to find, especially while on trips. Everywhere I go, I see almost all OEM oils, and Amsoil.

    I do think you get better engine protection from dino oil, and think THEE only downfall is that you need to clean your valves more often. Which is not that big of deal, and also a great way to keep an eye on your pistons.

    check this out. Mystic Lubricants MSDS info reveals that citgo manufactures their oils and they look to be very very similar to Sea and snow...
