Default type of oil?

I just got a used falcon 110 with no manual. Want to change the oil. What type of oil are you supposed to run in these things. 10w-30? 15w-40? And how much?

I use Valvoline 10wt-40 in all of my Honda and Chinese 4 strokes....

Id guess the 110 holds about 30ozs.

10w30 or 10w40 depending on what temp your in....make sure its NOT energy conserving and your good to go.

personally I use Rotella T 15w40 in all my off-road machines and Ive had good luck with it.....

I have been using that kind of oil in my air cooled 4 strokes for decades...No slipping or burnt clutches and no oil related engine damage in all that time..I dont think a air cooled 4 stroke puts enough stress on any of the engine parts for it to matter..

Now in a High Performance water cooled 4 stroke I would use something better...My KTM engine gets Amsoil 10wt-40 motorcycle oil.

let me clarify what your saying.

Your saying your using Energy Conserving oil in your dirt machines and its not caused any clutch slipping.

This is a 70 cc the model number is a EA110. We bought 2 but do not have a manual. I have tried to find a manual on line. Need help to make sure I do not ruin the units.

Paw,

Im pretty sure we are talking 4 stroke ATVs here but there are Chinese made 70cc 2 stroke ATVs out there.....

If its 4 stroke in all honestly you should be fine with

10w30
10w40
15w40

In reality theres not enough difference between the three weights to made a difference, especially in something like a childs ATV.

Ive use Valvoline ATV oil 10w40 in my sons China wheeler as well as Rotella T 15w40 - both worked excellent. The Valvoline ATV oil was purchased at NAPA and cost me about $5 a quart. The Rotella T is a heavy duty oil used primarily in diesel applications, purchased at WalMart for $11 a gallon.

As long as its in one of the above weights your good to go. I still stick by my recommendation of using oil that is NON energy conserving. Most 10w30 car oil IS energy conserving while most 10w40 IS NOT - so your best bet when looking is to check out the 10w40 weight oils. Motorcycle specific oils will be find as well but your likely going to spend $5+ a quart. In something like a wee wheeler I would much rather use a cheaper oil and change it more often as there is a lack of filter.

Ive purchased the Mobil equivalent of Rotella T, there HD oil is called DelVac super cheap at OReillys. They had a buy one get one free special at $11 a gallon....effectively making the oil $5.50 a GALLON.....or a $1.37 a quart.....thats CHEAP. Its also darn good oil.
