Rotella 15w-40 or straight weight. Synthetic oil is too slick for the bottom end. They wont last. Synthetic oil is also too slick for the piston oil wiper ring, which is why the engine burns and consumes more.
I have a question slightly off subject but it has to do with the oil... I am getting a rebuilt motor back from Nflow shortly and wondering what you guys think is the best for break in? Same as my normal Mobil 1 synthetic
I'm just curious, I have been lurking on this oil thread for a while now and read and read and read. Tried to find more info from diff websites like bobistheoilguy and not really finding the results.
Im looking for some test results of the amsoil and maybe some of the other synthetics in the brute force. By the poll it seems like Amsoil,Castrol,Manufactures brand, mobil and shell r is the most commonly used. Im guessing out of all of these Amsoil, and mobil 1 are the most common sythetics listed.
I was hoping to see a result of the sythetic vs conv. oil in a brute under normal conditions and see what to go with. Surely someone has had a sample sent off. Or is there a kit you can buy to test oil.
As of right now personally i have used the Kawi oil until my shop quit selling it so i have been using Honda oil. I run Amsoil in my R6 and like it enough i wouldnt mind runnin it in the brutus
I'm sure Amsoil has lots of propaganda and test results on their website. It almost toasted a very expensive LT1 of mine 37 years ago.. so I'll never trust it in anything ever again. But lots do and sware by it so..go for it. Personally, If I were to go synthetic, it would be Mobile-1, Royal Purple, Castrol or even a Valvoline. But most pre 2012 Brutes don't like synthetic...they burn it. Mine is one.
Hey, my cvt belt on my BF 300 is slipping so I’ve decided to change it because I’m tech savvy and can figure things out quickly. I’m stumped.
I can’t get the dang cover off the tranny. The front side has broke away but the back part isn’t budging. Is there an internal screw holding it on? Help...
Does anyone know if I can convert to reverse gear instead of the chain upgrade? Also, any info on the turf mode delete would be awesome. Part numbers or best priced company.

Hi folks, a guy has a 2014 brute with eps he's parting out.
What do I need off it to convert my non eps 2014 brute to eps?

so I just traded my foreman for this 2016 brute force 750i eps I didn't realize this until I got it home. All my gears are trashed except for my ring gear I'm needing to rebuild it but for oem parts I'm looking at around 2k. Does anyone know of any other web sites or places I can find cheaper...
