Re: OIL Change? 2011 RZR

Yeah make sure to just get the oils and everything you need before the warranty runs out. Its also good to have some in hand just in case a problem occurs! Also if you don't want to spend the $11.99 or so for the oil filter there are some threads that say what other oil filter type works and most of the brands are the exact same, just without the polaris logo.

Do you know what the model # is for the E3 spark plug? I was looking everywhere for it yesterday and can't seem to find it. I have the 2011 900, is that what you have?

Re: OIL Change? 2011 RZR

For those of us who don't have weekend access to the ps-4 oil the 2011 manual says to use, can we sub for Synthetic 0-40?
regarding the filter, I did a K&N cross reference, and the K&N pt# is HP-1010.

Any recommendations on the oil?

cheers.

Re: OIL Change? 2011 RZR

I don't remember what the book says, but here's what I do cuz of our dusty conditions in AZ:

First 25 hours: Repl all fluids and oil filter (break in)
Every 25 hours: Repl Motor oil (oil only)
Every 50 hours: Repl Oil filter (in addition to the oil)
Every 100 Hours: Repl ALL fluids and spark plugs

Basically, my oil gets repl every 25 hours. My Oil filter gets repl every OTHER oil change.

My plan/schedule is somewhat in line with the book, but my plan is a little more aggressive or conservative.

Ethan, Every 100 miles you change the oil? I'd be changing my oil every weekend at that rate. With a clean air filter and a good oil filter you should be able to triple that easily. To each his own maintenance intervals...

For those asking about transmission fluids, your manual has the breakdown of what's needed and when. Should read it to get a better idea. As they say

I just think i got a little water in mine this weekend bc it was puking out milky stuff sunday and figured i need to change the transmission oils. REalizing that i didnt wanna drain the wrong one is really where iwas going with my questions. Cause i just purchased a new one and just learning

Yeah, sounds like a change is necessary for sure. You should download the real shop manual from here. Cliff has a link off his signature. Need to find you a link for that...

If you want to do the work now, just call a local dealer and tell them you need all the transmission fluids. Go with the Polaris stuff until you figure out less expensive alternatives if that's the route you want to take. Engine oil is different, but I'd stick to the specific Polaris oils for everything else. JMO.


Edit: Here's a direct link to the actual shop manuals from Tuf-Skin's signature: http://www.4shared.com/dir/28834101/...0/sharing.html
