Kawasaki Introduces a New Line of Performance Oils


“What oil should I run?” is easily the most commonly repeated and often mocked question circulating through PWC groups on Facebook and chat rooms. While it’s easy to mock these questions, it still leaves the inquirer asking, “Well, which is it?” And for the JetSki enthusiast, Kawasaki has just answered that question with a very exciting new option: KPO.

Kawasaki Performance Oils (KPO) just released a whole new line of fully synthetic powersports oils, which a line dedicated just for watercraft. Developed and tested to provide superior performance and protection in harsh marine environments, the KPO blend gives your JetSKi rust and corrosion protection in high-performance marine engines.

And don’t think all of the love is for the modern 4-stroke guys; KPO has a full synthetic 2-stroke oil developed to provide superior performance and protection regardless of how harsh the environment might be, whether your Kawasaki runs premix or an oil injection systems. And you want to know a secret? You don’t have to run this stuff in just Kawasakis, either.

Here’s the entire press release:
With decades of experience offering top performance and high-quality oils to powersports owners, Kawasaki is excited to announce a new line-up of Kawasaki Performance Oils (KPO). Combining updated branding with all-new motorcycle formulations and even greater improved performance, the new KPO product line-up consists of industry-leading products exclusively designed and tested for Kawasaki engines to meet or exceed performance requirements and keep your powersport vehicle running at its best.

KPO MOTORCYLE OILS
The all-new KPO 4-stroke motorcycle engine oil utilizes the highest quality base oils and patented cutting-edge dual friction technologies. Modern engines demand better oil due to tighter clearances, higher RPMs, and hotter running temperatures, which is exactly what KPO 4-stroke motorcycle oil was designed for. It has been tested and proven to reduce engine friction while producing high clutch friction, providing the rider with an excellent clutch and shift feel. This new formula also produces excellent engine cleanliness and durability. The KPO 4-stroke oil is offered in full synthetic, semi-synthetic, and conventional 4-stroke engine oil.

KPO full synthetic 4-stroke oil has been formulated to provide the ultimate clutch feel and durability, while providing superior protection under extreme conditions. This motorcycle-specific formula provides dual friction technology that offers low friction in the engine and three times the JASO MA2 clutch friction performance durability. It delivers maximum engine lubrication and protection over a wide range of temperatures and operating conditions, including high RPM, high temperatures, and extreme cold.

KPO semi-synthetic 4-stroke engine oil has been blended with high-quality base oils and superior synthetic oil to keep your Kawasaki protected and performing at its best. Featuring optimum engine lubrication over a wide range of temperatures and operating conditions, superior engine and bearing wear protection is delivered and a prolonged engine life is achieved through engine cleanliness and reduced oil volatility.

KPO conventional 4-stroke engine oil utilizes high-quality base oils and additives for a formulation that keeps your Kawasaki’s engine and transmission clean and efficient, making it the right choice for owners who want quality engine oil at a great price. It provides outstanding piston cleanliness to help prevent deposit and ring sticking as well as excellent camshaft wear protection for a long engine life. It’s available in several options including 10W-30, 10W-40, and 20W-50.

KPO ATV/UTV OIL
The KPO ATV/UTV full synthetic 4-stroke engine oil has been formulated and extensively tested for your engine and transmission to provide superior performance and protection under high load, high heat, and extreme cold environments. It’s designed to work for both gasoline and diesel applications. The full synthetic provides maximum engine lubrication over a wide range of temperatures and operating conditions. It delivers superior performance and engine durability, including excellent bearing wear protection. In addition to improved engine cleanliness and reduced oil volatility, it demonstrates excellent viscosity stability, corrosion resistance, and oxidation control characteristics that are ideal for harsh operating environments required for protection in newer engines.

KPO ATV/UTV semi-synthetic 4-stroke engine oil is formulated to provide maximum engine lubrication over a wide range of temperatures and operating conditions found in real-world experience. Similar to the full synthetic, it’s recommended for both gasoline and diesel applications. The semi-synthetic formula delivers high-performance and engine durability as well as advanced wear protection for increased engine durability and a long engine life. It boasts excellent acid neutralization and oxidation control characteristics required for protection in newer engines while improving performance in older engines.

KPO JET SKI® WATERCRAFT OIL
The KPO Jet Ski watercraft full synthetic oil has been developed and extensively tested for your engine to provide superior performance and protection in harsh marine environments. Using a full synthetic formula, it’s blended to provide superior rust and corrosion protection in high-performance marine engines and designed to tackle the toughest of environments. It helps maintain viscosity at high temperatures, high speeds, and under a high load.

Just like the full synthetic watercraft oil, the KPO Jet Ski watercraft 2-stroke oil has been developed to provide superior performance and protection regardless of how harsh the environment might be. It’s formulated for premix or oil injection systems. This formula provides top performance and protection for 2-stroke water-cooled engines and helps them maintain cleanliness and power throughout the life of the engine. It’s designed to protect at idle and wide open throttle for immediate engine response on the water.
