Snowmobile Safety Tips

Precautions You Need to Take When Going out in Your Snowmobile

7 Tips to Help Make Your Snowmobile Adventures Better and Safer

  1. Inspect your snowmobile. There are several areas of your snowmobile that need to be checked before you head out. Inspect that the steering, skies, and drive system are all in good conditions. Then ensure the brakes are working perfectly and that all the lights are also working. The suspension and track should also be in good shape. Never head out for a ride without checking the fluids. It is recommended that you check the fluids ahead of time so that you have time to change or add more if necessary. Ensure that the tank is full of fresh and clean fuel. Also, be sure to check the oil and oil filter.
  2. Use quality lubricant and durable products. Remember to always use quality oil that can provide the most protection. AMSOIL synthetic oil is always your best option for all your snowmobile adventures. It offers fast acting lubrication no matter how harsh conditions become. Get your hands on the most efficient synthetic oil for your snowmobile, today by contacting Synthetic Oil Inc, right now. 
  3. Plan your trip. Whether you are going for a quick ride on your snowmobile or taking a long trip with a friend you need to plan your trip. Check the weather forecast and plan your route, take precautions and make sure you verify if the route you have planned is updated and free of dangerous hazards. For trail maps, information, tips and other advice on planning your route you can check out the Vermont Association of Snow Travelers website, here.
  4. Tell your family or friends your plans. If you are heading out on the snow it isn´t just helpful to have a plan yourself you also need to let others know so that they can go look for you should you encounter a problem or face difficulties out there. The best thing to do is to always bring a buddy along and let a family member or friend know  your route and location. In the event of an accident or an emergency, you have someone to help you out and even when all is well, it is still a nice way to get some bonding time.
  5. Stay prepared for bad weather. You need to always be prepared and that includes packing for the unexpected. Even if it looks clear and the weather report states that the day will be perfect for riding out in the snow, you still need to make sure you plan for an emergency. Include and ensure you have the right gear and necessary emergency tools. Besides your regular emergency pack try to also carry a snow probe, a shovel, and an avalanche beacon. These tools are incredibly helpful in case of an avalanche emergency.
  6. Emergency Kit. This is something you should always take with you no matter how close or far you are going on your snowmobile. You can purchase a complete emergency kit or make your own. Make sure you include a first aid kit, water, some high energy food, a whistle and other items that would be helpful in an emergency scenario.
  7. Use the proper wardrobe and gear. The key is layers, layers, and some more layers. Taking off a layer or too if temperatures rise is much easier than trying to keep warmer when degrees drop and you are far out. Make sure your inner layers are fast drying and lightweight. You want to avoid sweat and moisture from keeping you damp. The outer layer should at least have some sort of waterproof protection. The ideal thing would be to wear an outer snowmobile suit. These suits are made to protect you from the weather conditions and most are waterproof. You may even find some specialized suits that have built-in flotation devices in case you should fall through a sheet of ice.Of course, you also need to wear your helmet whenever you get on your snowmobile. Never underestimate the importance of it.

Which AMSOIL Synthetic Snowmobile Oil is Right for Me?

AMSOIL snowmobile products deliver protection advanced enough to unleash the full power potential of any brand of snowmobile, including Polaris®, Ski-Doo®, Arctic Cat®, Yamaha® and more. Check out these guidelines for choosing the right oil for your sled. For more products recommendations, consult our Snowmobile Product Guide.

For hardcore riders who own newer, high-performance sleds and live for snowmobiling.

* Prevents piston-ring sticking and piston scuffing
* Fights exhaust-power-valve deposits
* Outstanding cold-flow 

To reduce emissions, modern two-stroke snowmobiles are designed to burn less oil without sacrificing power. This generates high heat, which can lead to piston-ring sticking, piston scuffing and exhaust-power-valve sticking if the oil isn’t formulated to withstand the intense environment.

INTERCEPTOR offers the proven ability to prevent ring sticking, piston scuffing and exhaust-power-valve sticking in modern, high-performance sleds, helping you get the best performance and most years out of your snowmobile. It’s also less expensive than most original equipment manufacturer (OEM)-branded oils.

For racers, professional riders and owners of modified sleds.

* Maximizes power
* Burns cleanly
* Outstanding piston and bearing protection

Racing and modified sleds generate intense heat and pressure. High heat can burn off light oils, while intense pressure can exceed the film strength of low-viscosity oils, inviting wear.

DOMINATOR is formulated with heavier base oils to protect bearings, pistons and other components from the rigors of high-performance riding. It’s race-proven to protect against wear in the toughest riding conditions. DOMINATOR’s emphasis on wear protection means it doesn’t guard against power-valve sticking as well as INTERCEPTOR.

For casual riders and those seeking the convenience of one oil for year-round use.

Easy cold-weather starts
Quick startup protection
Helps prevent carbon/varnish formation

Synthetic 2-Stroke Injector Oil is perfect if you don’t necessarily want the superior performance of INTERCEPTOR or DOMINATOR. It offers the convenience of using only one oil for all your two-stroke powersports toys, including marine applications.

For owners of four-stroke snowmobiles.

Easy start
* Low Smoke
Excellent wear protection

Cold temperatures can cause conventional oils to thicken, making them difficult to circulate until the engine warms up. Cold, thick oil may not reach components at startup, causing wear.

Formula 4-Stroke Power Sports Synthetic Motor Oil provides outstanding cold-flow properties. It eases cold starts and guards against wear at startup, helping extend engine life.
