C-TEC4 Synthetic Oil >>

Arctic Cat C-TEC4 Synthetic Oil was originally formulated for use in Arctic Cat’s new 7000-series C-TEC4 1049cc 4-stroke engine. Boasting 135-horsepower, this three-cylinder engine is the highest-performing naturally-aspirated 4-stroke engine in Arctic Cat snowmobile history. In order to meet the unique lubrication needs of this new engine, Arctic Cat developed a new, full-synthetic 0W-40 engine oil – C-TEC4 Synthetic Oil. At the same time they made sure new C-TEC4 Synthetic Oil would surpass the current 4-Stroke snowmobile oil in Arctic Cat’s lubricant lineup and perform better in the turbocharged 9000 C-TEC4 and naturally-aspirated 5000 C-TEC4 engines. C-TEC4 Synthetic Oil is a multi-viscosity blend that features excellent cold flow and easy starting at extreme cold temperatures. The full-synthetic formula is highly shear-stable so it won’t break down in high heat or high load situations. It also contains a focused, advanced additive package that prevents oxidation, wear and corrosion. C-TEC4 Synthetic is the best oil choice for Arctic Cat snowmobiles powered by 4-stroke C-TEC4...

Protect Your Fuel System With Arctic Cat Fuel Stabilizer >>

Today’s Ethanol-blended fuels are designed primarily for automotive use and can cause serious fuel system problems in powersports applications. Ethanol is hygroscopic (soluble in water) so it has a tendency to collect water and during storage or intermittent use the moisture content can surpass the ability of Ethanol to keep it suspended. Eventually the water will separate and pool in the lowest parts of the fuel system in a process is called phase separation which can lead to hard starting, no starting and corrosion. Arctic Cat Fuel Stabilizer addresses the negative aspects of phase separation and is an inexpensive way to protect your Arctic Cat vehicles. Add Arctic Cat Fuel Stabilizer to your fuel system periodically and especially before periods of extended non-use or...

Tucker Wins – You Win! APV Promotion >>

Tucker Hibbert capped off the 2013-2014 snocross season with a clean sweep of the final race in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Lake Geneva was a triple weekend, and that means 24 people won an autographed gallon of APV Synthetic oil, the same oil that helped power Hibbert to the Pro Open championship. In all, we had 120-winners this season. A big thanks to everyone who signed up and congratulations to Tucker and everyone who won. This season was Hibbert’s 14th season in the Pro class and it was his best ever. In addition to scoring 15 of 17 wins, he surpassed Blair Morgan’s all-time record of 84 Pro National wins, became the first athlete to win seven consecutive Winter X Games gold medals and headed into next season he’s on track to take the 100th win of his Pro snocross career.

Why Arctic Cat Snowmobile Lubricants >>

Talking Oil With Arctic Cat Snowmobile Engineers What are the different Arctic Cat 2-Stroke oils? Arctic Cat Engineer: We offer three types of oil for two-stroke engines: Arctic Cat C-TEC2 Synthetic Oil, the ultimate high-tech oil featuring industry-leading synthetic technology, Synthetic APV oil, the highest performance product for machines with APV electronic power valves and Formula 50 mineral oil, for non-APV engines. Our C-TEC2 Synthetic oil can be used in any one of our two-stroke engines and it is the only oil approved for use in the new C-TEC2 engine. If you have an engine with APV valves, you should use the Synthetic APV oil to minimize deposits on the power valves and maintain the performance of the engine. It also has a low smoke and fresh scent formulation.  Formula 50 is a value-priced mineral oil for non-APV engines. Why should sledders be concerned with deposit formations on APV valves? Arctic Cat Engineer: Carbon and varnish deposits could cause an APV valve, or valves, to stick, usually in the up position. Once that happens, fuel mileage and engine performance decrease significantly, with decreased throttle response being one of the tell-tale signs. Any APV-equipped engine will experience some level of deposits on the valves. Period. APV oil minimizes it. How do Arctic Cat oils differ from other brands? Arctic Cat Engineer: Well, like I mentioned before, no other brand oil is formulated for the specific design of Arctic Cat snowmobile engines, nor are they tested in our engines. We know with certainty that Arctic Cat APV oil is the best-performing oil for Arctic Cat APV engines. We have also tested other brands in our engines and the results have shown more deposit formations on valves and unsatisfactory performance in other areas. What about the claims some brands make about improving engine horsepower? Arctic Cat Engineer: Absolutely not true. Believe me, if we could offer oil that delivered more horsepower without sacrificing protection, we would. Another untrue sales pitch we see is that brand X oil “will clean an engine`s exhaust valves.” Again, not true. Arctic Cat also offers oil for its 4-stroke machines. What`s unique about it? Arctic Cat Engineer: We offer our Synthetic C-TEC4 4-Stroke Engine Oil. These high-performance engines run at higher operating temperatures, especially the turbocharged 9000-series engine and the 7000-series engine, so they require a special oil formulation. Our 4-stroke oil is designed and tested specifically for our engines, just like our 2-stroke oils. This oil is recommended for any Arctic Cat 4-stroke snowmobile...
