June 2011 Powersport News

After beating on your equipment all season long and with summer coming quickly to a close, you're ready to squeeze that last little bit of performance out of your vehicle. It's now more important that ever to prevent breakage and wear so that you can finish the season strong and not let the season finish you. What you may be thinking maintenance takes tons of time and a certain level of mechanical expertise.


Well, with these easy tips from Royal Purple, it's easier and faster than you expect.


Protect Your Cables

In the tough, dirty environment where you play, it's more important that ever to take care of your cables to keep them from getting hung up or binding up causing major issues. With just a few squirts of Maxfilm, it's taken care of. Maxfilm is a multipurpose, synthetic lubricant that deeply penetrates leaving an exceptionally tough and durable lubricating film for improved operation and long lasting protection against wear, rust and corrosion.


Extend The Life Of Your Chain

Everyone has experienced that frustrating moment when you're chain begins to slip and you start losing power or even worse, it comes off completely, causing a catastrophic failure. Replacing chains is not only annoying but, sometimes they can be hard to find while on the road, so why not do a few quick minutes of maintenance and roll worry free for the remainder of the season. One of the easiest and most cost-effective things you can do to preserve your chain drive it to keep it lubricated properly with a high performance synthetic lubricant.


Max-Chain is an advanced, synthetic lubricant that dramatically reduces wear and extends equipment life. It provides excellent protection against rust and corrosion for chains, open gears and exposed metal surfaces subjected to severe loading. It works equally well in wet, acidic environments and dusty environments. Max-Chain can be applied by either spraying or brushing. Once applied, the carrier evaporates, leaving a long-lasting, dry, wax-like film. This non-tacky film effectively minimizes the collection of abrasive dust and other airborne contaminants. Max-Chain can lubricate at up to 400 degrees F once the carrying solvent has evaporated.


Keep It Cool

Whether you're out on the trail or racing across the dunes, you're hot and so is your engine. While it might be tricky for you to stay cool, it's easier than ever to help keep your engine cool. One of the quickest and most inexpensive ways to fight against engine heat is to add a high performance, synthetic radiator coolant additive such as Purple Ice.  Just add the recommended amount to your coolant system and you're good to go. Purple Ice reduces engine heat by reducing surface tension of the radiator fluids for improved heat transfer all while preventing the formation of scale deposits in the radiator and lubricating the water pump seals.
