    We have a 3 or 4 year old AC 90. I usually change the oil once a year, but it is getting used and abused! Our 2 kids ride it, 4 neighbor kids and their friends ride it and my wife and the neighbor mom's all like to ride it. But it gets pegged at the rev limiter for several minutes at a time...

    I (original owner) have a 1987 Yamaha moto 4 champ 100. I went to change the oil a few weeks back and the oil drain plug cracked in half! I attempted to fix it using JB Weld and tapping the thread but it ended up breaking off again when screwing in the bolt. Anyone have suggestions??*(Pictures...

    Hi, I just realised my quad was leaking oil. When I looked underneath seems like there is a thin hose ('disconnected') but I have no idea where it is supposed to be connected. Any suggestions? Thanks heaps in advance

    Don't just put anything into your off-road vehicle Motor oil is just motor oil, right? Wrong! Your ATV or UTV requires motor oil just like any other motorized vehicle, but any oil just doesn’t cut it. These machines run at higher RPM, work harder and run harder than your truck does, so...

    Sometimes I wonder why I even try? Just as the title says, I stripped my oil plug yesterday. Talk about mad. It would have been different if I put a lot torque on it, but I was just turning it with a standard 1/4 drive ratchet. It never even got tight. When it wouldn't tighten I removed the plug...

    Good afternoon! I noticed a drip of oil today on my exhaust and further investigated, finding a good amount of oil in the airbox. The machine has 80 miles on it, it is a 500. Awesome machine, by the way, much more nimble than my old 700 polaris was...... Anyway, I did tip the machine on its...

    I was talking with a buddy the other day, he used to ride a 400ex and a 450. Now he is in the army and doesn't get to ride, but he was telling that I should use Baby oil ina spray bottle, and spray it on before I ride and it will work just like XTC's MG, and the mud will sheet off! I haven't...

    Hey guys, what do you use to clean up oil that has been spilled on your garage floor? I made a gigantic mess today. I already used about a wheelbarrel full of kitty litter, but the garage floor is still oil stained. What can I use to get the concrete all nice and clean again? Thanks. 3TV

You may feel free to question my abilities to gather facts and draw conclusions in the area of oils and filters. In any case, this is a...
