Oil recommendations?

What's everyone using for engine oil for their Turbo S? I've heard Polaris oil is bad. Is that true? I've been thinking about getting a kit that Team Alba Racing recommends and sells on their website with Maxima Synblend. Anyone have any recommendations?

Just remember to change the oil. Don’t obsess too much on what kind of sticker the oil bottle has on it.

Re: Oil recommendations?

I use the Polaris ExtremeDuty oil. There may be better options, but there are strict guidelines if you have warranty issues. Since I bought the extended, I donít want them to have any reason to wiggle out of a break-fix. In regards to warranty, itís like a religious argument. Everyone has their opinions. I bought one for my last RZR and it paid for itself in the first two years, with three to go. No brainer if you get out and use it as it was intended for. Oh. This was about oil. Sorry!

I'm also of the same opinion as you. I have 5 years total warranty on the Turbo S and I'm not willing to take chances just because I want to run Brand X oil and compromise a warranty. There is nothing wrong with Polaris Full Synthetic Oil.
