Kawasaki Adds Engine Oils
By Mike Brezonick04 April 2019
Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. Engines Division is adding two new engine oil formulations as well as adding to the package sizes for two existing oils.
Available this month at authorized Kawasaki dealers, the new 5W-30 and 15W-50 4-cycle viscosity KTech oils are formulated to meet or exceed API Service SL and JASO MA qualifications. The 5W-30 oil contains a zinc additive to protect against excessive wear on engine parts and is a synthetic blend that provides exceptional performance in low- temperature applications, Kawasaki said. It will be available in quart bottles.
The 15W-50 KTech oil is a full synthetic composition that also contains zinc. It will be available for purchase in either one or five-quart bottles.
Both of the new oils contain anti-foaming and anti-shear agents and are engineered to provide superior performance for both the commercial and individual user, with a focus on oil consumption control for heavy-duty service.
These new products join a family of Kawasaki Genuine Parts that includes products like four- and two- oils, tune-up kits, air and fuel filters, as well as short block engine assemblies for the company’s FS and FX series engines.
