As Opies is now stocking Amsoil products, we thought we’d give you a run down on one of their most popular bike oils that has been specifically formulated for V-Twin motorcycles – the Amsoil V-Twin 20w-50.
We’ve got a quick heads up for you regarding a few Mahle filters that are changing part numbers and design – this process can cause some confusion with those that are used to receiving the same looking filter every service, so this is our way of putting your mind at ease.
Good things come in threes. The Yamaha YXZ1000R’s sport-tuned three-cylinder engine is redefining what it takes to be on the cutting edge of UTV motor design. The 998cc liquid-cooled DOHC inline triple produces about 112 HP. One of the great things about this engine is that it responds very well to performance modifications.
Fitting a Mahle filter is a simple and straight forward process, that should give instant benefits to your engine upon completion. However, human error can sometimes cause some issues during the installation process. Even the most dedicated and experienced mechanic or DIY handy man can make mistakes from time to time! Today, we will be looking at the correct fitment of Mahle KX229D fuel filter as an example, and how a few simple steps can ensure that your fuel filter is properly in place.
In today’s low emission and high-efficiency engines, the key to effective combustion is a consistent, high-energy ignition output. The high voltage required for ignition is provided by the Ignition Coil – a type of transformer that features primary and secondary coils of wire wrapped in layers around an iron core. The role of the Ignition Coil is to transform the low voltage in a car’s battery into the thousands of volts which are used by the Spark Plug to generate sparking. These sparks ignite the air-fuel mixture inside the combustion chamber.
Today, DENSO explains the key to effective combustion and how to accurately diagnose faults in ignition system.
Since the company first started producing Lambda Sensors in the 1970s, DENSO’s continual innovation has helped drive engine efficiency to achieve better MPG and lower emissions, while delivering long-lasting quality to customers.
Opies are proud to stock a huge range of quality Denso Lambda Sensors that cover a massive array of vehicles, so thought you guys may be interested in a quick insight into how Denso have been at the forefront of developing this technology.
At Opies, we try and keep our stock levels as accurate as possible with regular stock takes. However, due to the nature of the beast, it can sometimes happen that after a stock take, we have more stock on the shelf than our stock system thought. A happy accident, if you will.
Also, we like to keep all of our images up to date and our stock as current as possible – between manufacturers changing their labels on popular products and introducing new bottle shapes, you can soon end up with some older designs hanging about. Being the generous folks that we are, we decided to add this older stock to the Opies clearance section, rather than just having it sit on the shelf!
