Про масло, вычитал на сайтах америкосов.
Here is something that not many shops if any will share with you, but we want customers to have a trouble free and long ski life! On an ultra the below is key for a healthy engine. Please note that due to the supercharger ALL Ultra engines really do not last more than 200-250 hours. We highly recommend refreshing the engine before this time comes to prevent any engine failures. We have tested and tested and have concluded the biggest wear item is the oil pump, which is also the heart of the engine. As the engine wears, so does the pump. As much as you can try to prevent it, this will happen. The pump is cast aluminum with a hardened steel rotor. When small debris get sucked up, it scours the aluminum and steel as it rotates. Over time the scoring gets worse and worse and oil pressure/ volume keeps on dropping. Engine wear accelerates and I am sure you know the result.
There is a lot of information whether true or false about oil changes and what oil to use. Many people swear by Kawasaki oil, many swear by Yamaha oil and so on. After tons and tons of testing and countless oil changes, we will give you our best recommendation for oil change intervals and what oil to use! The Kawasaki Ultra is a race machine on the water and needs to be treated as such. We recommend oil change intervals of 15 hours on a recreational machine and 10 on a race machine. Reason being is heat and blow by. The oil gets extremely hot from the stresses in these engines and does start to burn very quickly, burning is very bad and degrades the oils properties. Going over 15 hours on a recreational machine increases the buildup of sludge and as the oil burns it will loose its main purpose as a lubricant. Oil should be changed with a new filter and new set of plus. ANY MACHINE MUST USE ANTI-SIEZE ON PLUGS!
There is a lot of debate over the brand of oil and grade as well. We highly recommend staying away from any conventional motor oil or blend. These oils burn much easier and loose their properties faster. There are two grades we recommend: 10W-40, 15W-50 or 20W-50. 10W-40 is best in cold climates where the temperature does not go over 70F. The 15W-50 and 20W-50 is the best for most climates since it handles the heat much better, stays relatively thick at higher temperatures and has a higher shear strength. We recommend the thicker oil for all climates below Canada. As for type, we recommend a fully synthetic only. Any top brand motor oil with high anti-wear additives. Royal purple, Motul, Amzoil, Mobil1, make sure to check for additives. This can be marine or automotive oil. Please do not use motorcycle oil
, this has clutch additives that you do not want. We use Valvoline VR1 20W-50 Full Synthetic in all of our machines! This oil can handle full throttle all day long and shows little to no tappet wear as compared to the Mobil 1 which has much less wear additives. This oil also contains an anti-foam additive so that the oil does not get as foamy at high rpm.
Короче в двух словах, Масло лить 15W50 синтетика. Лить только автомобильное масло, не лить масло для мотоциклов, т.к в нем присадки для сцепления, которые не нужны нам в двигателе, т.к сцепления там нет!!!
И самое печальное, мотор без ремонта ходит 200-250 часов, не более, причина выхода из строя мотора в основном одна - это падение давления масла, т.к маслянный насос изнашивается, и перестает давить нормально. Кому интересно все что написано, переведите в гугле. Там все понятно переводит.
