Engine Oil For Sportsman 850XP

Hi to all. What is the Mobil 1 motor oil that everyone is using for the equal for Polaris 2w-40 oil. I have a 2010 Sportsman 850 XP. Also has anyone come up with a Mobil 1 oil filter that can be used?
Thanks for your help in advance.
Gary

Thanks for the input. I will more than likely use 5w-50 Mobil 1. I live in the south.

At a minimum...I recommend going with a 0w oil. The thinner oil at start-up will save your engine from any possible damage from these tight tolerances in today’s engines.

The 40 or 50 will work just fine...IMHO.

Good luck...

^^ agreed, you really want to go as close to 0w as you can, with 0w probably being the best option. the 50 will be okay though
