Mobil1 full synthetic yes.

While under "factory warranty", either std 6 month or extended factory..... I'd run the recommended 5W50 weight oil (As a warranty claim, "Just in case" precausion), in any "good" full synthetic brand blend. But, after that..... you'll find many run Mobil1 0W40, Amsoil 0W40 and Pure Polaris 5W50.... or thier "recommended flavor of the year".

Polaris has recommendations, but their house brand fluids are for only one purpose. Make them $$. The OEM oil only has to get you thru the warranty period. Think about it, how many want you to keep driving your SxS? You are the only one; Polaris and the dealers want to sell you a new one.

Skip the Polaris brand, use one of the other 2, Mobil 1 or AMSOIL
