It is highly recommended that you use BRP's XPS products when it comes to service.  BRP has gone to great lengths to make sure their oils meet very high standards to match their Rotax engines.  With tight tolerances an engine needs to run clean to be fuel efficient and last a long time.

 

BRP offers an All-in-One Oil Change Kit that includes the XPS Synthetic Blend Oil, Oil Filter, O-rings and Washer.  Each kit is specific to the SM5, SE5, SM6 & SE6 transmission on your Can-am Spyder.

 

And as always the easiest way to make sure you're getting the proper service is to call us here at Lithgow Motorsports and set up an appointment to keep your Can-Am Spyder running clean, cool and efficient to keep you where you want to be, riding!
