Oil Change

Am getting to do the first oil change on my 09 teryx. What brand and weight oil does most use. Should I use Synthetic or keep the same oil thats in it now? Any recs on oil filters or are all of them similar. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks Bob S.

do a search and you'll get all the opinions and results

I wouldn't switch to synthetic until your at around 50 hours (no need to pay the premium to just dump the oil after little use).

Fiters are all over the plce, but good ones are OEM Kawi, NAPA Gold, WIX, K&N.

I switched to Amsoil synthetic...but since it's burning way more then reg oil so I may switch back. 13 bucks a quarts isn't cheap.
