Polaris oil substitute

First off I have a outlaw 500 which has a clutch. I was wondering if there is descent plaris oil substitute. Like mobil 1 or quakerstate. The manual calls for PS-4 type engine oil. Any thoughts?

fyi: I worked at Castrol and we made Bombardi 2 stroke oil, all it was was Castrol Super 2 Stoke with out the blue die, the biggest diffrence is the price. It would be cool to get a list of comparable fluids for the ATV e.g. trans, ADC, ect

I used to do nothing but skidoo sleds for many years and I was aware that castrol made all of the oilos for bomber. And yes the price is stupid expensive for them just relabeling those products. I went ahead and paid the $32.00 for the polaris PS-4 motor oil since the mchine is new and under warrenty. That same jug of synthetic motor oil would have costs $50 if it was labeled as a can am lube.

Does the Outlaw have a wet clutch? If so, you need an oil that is Jaso ma spec. Amsoil atv 0w40 or Rotella T6 5w40.

I've been using the Rotella T6 5w-40. It's usually a good deal. Unless you live north of the Arctic Circle, I don't think there's much difference between a 0w and 5w.

There is a difference. Shell released a T6 0W40 for colder climates.
