Doing a 4 day 1000 Mile bagger trip.... with my Freeride 800Etec... where do you guys carry oil??   

 

I won't need my Linq Gas can..think I can fill it with Oil?? I would be the perfect carrier....

Can't you buy oil where you are getting gas?

+1 for the linq can. I would have one buddy fill his can with gas, and mine with oil. On a side note I couldnt imagine 250 miles a day for four days on my freeride haha

If you know your route call the hotels where you are booking your room and ask them if there is a doo dealer in town. If not, ask them if they carry oil for sledders ( you might be surprised) if none of this works ask them if its ok if you ship a few bottles to them for when you arrive. I literally just got home from mailing some to a hotel in Quebec.

 

As for the linq idea, I looked into this. They are designed to be full or empty.. nothing in between. If it's half full of liquid it will slosh so hard that it will pop out of the linq brackets. This what dealer told me and it makes sense. I was bummed though. it'd be nice to have something for long trips.. besides a 4 stroke! lol

 

Mailing 2or 3 litres to every other stop will sure cut down on your weight and make your trip much more enjoyable.

I'm not even sure how sloshing around and knocking itself out of the mounts is even possible. Mine seems to be mounted fairly secure!

The oil caddy goggle bag that fits on your belt cover worked great for me while on a 5 day trip. Full tank plus a liter got me through a trip. I can't imagine needing to carry that much oil (weight) for a 4 day trip.

Owning a Mach Z is like having a totally hot girlfriend,................ all of your friends want to see it and check it out, they all want to know what it is like to ride it, but if they only knew how much time and money it takes to keep one up, they would call you a fool!

My renegade 800 etec that I had would get about 600 miles on a full resivor of oil. I would always buy a quart or so on the trail at gas stations and they always carried BRP oil on the shelf. Non issue now with my 1200!

Just did 625 miles in Quebec used over a gallon of oil, and it's hard to find BRP oil on the trails, and sometimes gas also, I would add another med bag and fuel caddy to your sled, bring 1 gallon and 2 quarts a to be safe. I will post some pics of my set up, my buddy has a gade I will get pics of his set up also
