Just like with your car, periodically changing your Can-Am Defender’s oil, fluids, and filters is an unfortunate but necessary fact of life. Neglecting these things may be tempting, but doing so will only lead to trouble down the road. One thing is for certain, there’s no reason to rely on anyone else to change your Can-Am Defender’s oil, fluids, and filters. With our selection of Can-Am Defender engine oil, transmission fluid, gearbox fluid, fuel filters, and air filters, everything you need for routine maintenance is at your fingertips.
Some riders change the engine oil and gear box fluid in their Can-Am Defender every 100 hours and the front differential fluid and spark plugs every 200 hours. Alternatively, others prefer to change all their fluids at the end of each riding season. But if you’re working your Can-Am Defender hard with tools and accessories like cultivator implements, seeders, and other attachments, you’ll need to change your Can-Am Defender’s gear box oil more often. For just trail riding, you don’t need to change the gear box fluids quite as often, that is unless you’re mudding of course. Additionally, those riders who use their Can-Am Defender to plow snow in the winter change their gear box oil more frequently. The gear box in the Can-Am defender has no filter, so the oil can become polluted fairly fast if you’re riding in the high rpm range for extended periods of time. The Can-Am Defender isn’t like your family truck or sedan where your transmission has a filter in the pan. And at the end of the day, Can-Am Defender transmission fluid is relatively cheap, and no machine will ever complain about getting new transmission fluid before its scheduled service interval. So, whether you’re looking for Can-Am Defender transmission fluid, differential fluid, or a complete Can-Am Defender fluid kit, we’ve got you covered with everything you need here at Everything Can-Am Offroad!
Whether its your car or UTV, air filters are one of those things we’ve all been guilty of neglecting at some point. It might not seem very important, but your Can-Am Defender’s air filter is what stops damaging and corrosive contaminants from making a home inside your engine. The truth is that not all UTV air filters are created equally. The quality of your Can-Am Defender’s air filter determines the level of pollutants you expose, and ultimately damage, your engine to. If you have the foresight to invest in a quality aftermarket Can-Am Defender air filter, don’t make the mistake of thinking your work is done. It’s equally important to change your Can-Am Defender’s air filter on a regular basis. Neglecting this will lead to a buildup in your air filter and restrict the airflow your Can-Am Defender’s engine needs to perform at its best.
The quality of oil you choose to run your Can-Am Defender with has a bigger impact on performance than most people realize. Not only does your Can-Am Defender’s oil quality affect performance, it also plays a factor in the level of wear and tear your vehicle experiences. The oil in your Can-Am Defender cushions the gear contact areas and keeps the gears and bearings cool. Using sub-par oil leads to unnecessary friction and heat that can shave years off the life of your Can-Am Defender’s engine. Ideally, a properly designed and properly assembled transmission, gear box, and differential with quality oil shouldn’t have any metallic residue. But add a bit of water to the mix as well as a few hard shifts, and metal shavings will occur, reducing the effectiveness of your oil.
At the end of the day, the more abuse you put your Can-Am Defender through, the better your oil quality and more frequent your oil changes need to be. Getting a full fluid change package for the Can-Am Defender can be cheaper than buying each type of fluid individually. But if you only need to change your Can-Am Defender’s differential fluid, your engine oil, or your transaxle gear oil, we’ve got full synthetic 5W-40 oil, XPS oil, and premium side-by-side fluids from some of the UTV industry’s most respected companies like ZBroz Racing, Maxima, and others. Protect, preserve, and extend the life of your Can-Am Defender with the oils, filters, and fluids from Everything Can-Am Offroad and it will give you many more years of fun and enjoyment in return!
