I cross referenced Wix filters, and use Mobil-1 0W-40!

If you don't buy the POLARIS Lubrication and filters, this is my choice!!

(Actually I prefer the Mobil1/WIX combo)

I just switched to 0w 40 based on this forums suggestions. what a price difference for sure! I can do an oil change at half the price, which is great considering i change it every 25 hours of ride time. CW do you have a cross reference chart for wix filters for a 2005 Sportsman 700 twin? Im guessing that filter will also be cheaper than a pure Polaris. Thanks!
