I always use Polaris fluids and filters just like i use toyota replacement parts for the 4runner. Yeah you may pay more but when your 10 miles or more back in the woods wheelin or hunting the last thing anyone needs is to find that cheaper after market stuff dident work correctly. I feel ya, oil and filter for Polaris is like $65. Mine is still under warranty so I do what they suggest so that I keep it under warranty, I am curious what others are using so I will do some asking around and post back.
I called the local Polaris dealer, Grand Prix Motor Sports here in Littleton and I found that their oil is a synthetic 0-40, I have never heard of such a thing but thats what the guy said. Mabey its special and thats why I have to take out a second mortgage for an oil change. Haha Im going to google and see who else makes that type of oil. Soory im not more help.
i only run polaris oil in polaris bikes because i hear they are very touchy, they want there 0-40 synthetic. also DONT use automotive coolant because it will eat your waterpump. use coolant for a quad.
i dont own a polaris but i know people the do and i have fixed to many of the to own one. lol i ride a honda......and a kawi and a suki and a yamaha...... we basicaly have everything but polaris. lol if that tells you anything.
