Thread: cleaning PVs?
03-20-2007, 04:26 PM #1
I've heard some people say they clean their PVs yearly and I've heard some people say they never clean them. Which do you do and why? If you do clean them, what do you use and what exactly do you clean?

If there are many hours on them, especially if there is Yamalube, I would inspect them, and clean them.
If you use a good two-stroke oil, they shouldn't need cleaning for a long time.
I run Amoil Interceptor and my valves at 100 hours were perfect. didn't need any cleaning.

yeah, i always used amsoil interceptor in my GPR which i bought new and all my other skis. the XLT i just picked up has 75 hours on it using yama-glue.
i'll check out the valves when i do the PV clips tomorrow. i assume there should be a little oil in there. i'll just clean up any excessive gunk. going to do the D plate tomorrow too so i'll switch it over to amsoil.

Here is something to spray into the carbs or throttle body every now and then to keep the head, piston and valves clean. It is safe for 2 and 4 stroke engines. Not for Diesel's. Prices listed are Retail. For Preferred Customer pricing please E-Mail, PM or call me.

good luck getting that in the carbs of an XLT or GPR while it's running!

I have just finished assembling the motor in my latest project ski and when I pulled it apart I could not beleive the sludge in the power valves I had caps from another motor I used them and tossed the others in a bag they were solid crud as were the voids in the top of the pocket where they sit all I can say it is a good thing I only had two to clean what a mess.
The guy gave me a couple quarts of Yama-Glue with the ski anybody need some? I only use Amsoil
