Why Synthetic Oil is Superior

Synthetic oil is engineered to outperform conventional oil in various ways. Its molecular composition is tailored for optimal lubrication and protection of the engine components, especially in high-performance vehicles like the Can-Am* Commander* 1000R. Synthetic oil offers superior viscosity properties, ensuring smooth operation even in extreme temperatures. Additionally, it resists thermal breakdown better than conventional oil, leading to extended oil change intervals and increased engine lifespan.

The Rotax®* engine, known for its optimal performance, necessitates the use of high-quality 5W-40 or 0W-40 viscosity oil, with a capacity of 2.11 quarts. When considering an upgrade to synthetic oil, it is advisable to select a specialized formula tailored specifically for four-stroke powersports engines. By choosing a synthetic oil designed for such engines, you ensure enhanced engine protection and longevity, as well as improved overall performance. This tailored formula is formulated to meet the unique demands of high-intensity powersports activities, providing superior lubrication and temperature stability under extreme conditions. While conventional oils may suffice, synthetic oils offer advanced benefits that can optimize the efficiency and durability of your Can-Am* Commander* 1000R Rotax®* engine in the long run.
