Oil Change

I know there is most likely a topic out there about this but I thought I would ask. Its time to change the oil on my 2016 800, i was wanting to go synthetic but looking for others opinion is it worth the extra price. What oil do most of you run . IM down here in southern Texas so its going to start getting really hot down hear. Thanks for any suggestion

You should shoot seymourATV a PM about this heís documented a lot of research on this subject. I personally use Amsoil throughout.

I may have to grow old, but you can't make me grow up!

Oil Change

Any full synthetic oil meets or exceeds brp oil. Being in a hot climate you can increase the weight . Iím in wv been running 20/50 oil from day one no issues .

1 st. Synthetic is required oil by BRP and the best choice, "IMHO"
2 nd. My choice is Mobil 1 5-W/40 Diesel Truck, it meets and exceeds BRP oil specs.
