WIX or Fram filter I can use with Sportsman 500 2003

Looking for a less expensive oil filter to use on my 03 Sportsman 500 and I was wondering if any one knew the Wix or Fram or ??? equivalent. Also I want to move from conventional oil to Synthetic Mobil 1. Are there any precautions that I need to follow when moving from conventional to Synthetic ?

Also can someone tell me what the oil capacity is for this model ?
Thanks

Filter cross reference, look here..... Polaris Oil Filter Cross-Reference - MudInMyBlood Forums

I used a Purolator Classic 3.5" Filter (# P14610) on my last atv changes. I choose the 1" longer as it should have more filter element = more filtering surface area capability and more oil volume capacity.

As to dino to synthetic.... you shouldn't have any issues at all, it should actually be better for the machine!! However, I'm personally a fan of sticking to an oil brand and grade once switched over!

Should take 2 quarts (or 1.9 actual).

So..... at Walmart you should be able to get two quarts Mobile1 0W40 (@ about $7.00 each) and a Purolator Filter (@ about $4.50) plus local tax out the door for about $18-20 bucks, and it should be just as good as the $40 Polaris kit (with the spendy pretty box & blue bottles/green caps) you can get at your nearest dealer..... or 1/2 price for an equivalent product!

May also be a good idea to pick up a filter socket that fits these filters!!

Very True.... I think the 5 qrt jug I bought a couple weeks ago was $24.97. But still cheap enough, not to mention should cover 2 changes and extra to spare.

When I did oil on my machine(s), I picked up the 5 qrt jug and the two Purolator Classic filters (was planning on supplies for two changes, than picked up a second machine) and was only in it for about $35 vs the $80 I would have had into Polaris kits...... Hmmmm you do the math!

I'm not sure where the K&N number in the prior post came from...
I use the K&N 303 motorsports filter with a 17mm sheet metal nut on the end for easy removal.
Vehicle applications for K&N Part KN-303
The stock filter is rumored to be made by WIX.

In my experience Fram is junk. Wouldn't put it on a bicycle or wheelbarrow. Wix offers less expensive filters can be found at carquest and napa auto parts. Carquest red filter is R85358 and napa silver is 21358.
