What I want to know Blueline (and I know you work for a dealer) is what is a comparable filter and oil (weight and viscosity) that will work for my new ride that I can get at the local walmart or Tractor Supply? I'm also looking for a filter the is easy to put on and take off. I have heard the PoPo filter is a little difficult to get on/off. Any advice on a filter wrench. First change, just want to start right and get right tool for the long haul.
wow, sorry for my long delay.

you will find a hard time finding the right weight of oil at a lot of places. it is a fairly uncommon 0w40 full synethic oil. if you use a 10w40 that is very common, it will be too thick and it will probably blow through the airbox and soak your airfilter in oil, not good, so you have to stick with a 0w40.

i dont know who manufactures the polaris oil, they wont tell us. subaru manufactures the oil filters, from what i have seen stamped on them before. i personally like the hi flo filtro oil filters and in aftermarket brand. K&N makes sub-par filters for the price, its more about the name. i personally would not use K&N anything on any of my machines.

the only filter wrench we have found at the shop that fits and works for the XP is the one you can get through a dealer. we havent found one from any of our local auto parts stores (napa, autozone, ect.) that fits right. that filter wrench from the dealer is about $20-$30. i cant remember exactly. or, if you have a cool shop like us, they might let you borrow the filter wrench for a day or two for a $20 deposit (fully refundable when you bring the filter wrench back) to change your own oil at home

Question 1991 400 4 x 4

Help a newbie,
I just purchased what I was told is a 1991 Polaris Trail Boss 400 4 x 4 I went to Dennis Kirk to check into purchasing some things for it and they don't even list such a thing. Is somebody yanking my chain and took me for a ride? Where would I go to find out. It does say 400 and 4 x 4 on it

i dont know who manufactures the polaris oil, they wont tell us.
From a Polaris web site
Lube-Tech is a leading supplier of lubricants, solvents and chemicals for numerous applications. Lube-Tech blends Polaris Performance Lubricants to exacting Polaris specifications and also provides the Polaris Racing program with products such as race fuel, shop cleaners and solvents.
Every manufacturer that makes equipment with an engine has its own name on an oil bottle. That includes all the major auto manufacturers, the makers of motorcycles, ATV's, snowmobiles, farm equipment, you name it, they all have oils. But none of these equipment manufacturers actually make an oil. They sell oil to make more money, and then they often price these oils well above the going rate for competitive lubricants because, like Polaris, they can specify or create the impression that only their oil be used in their equipment.

I just bought a 2010 Sportsman 300. I purchased a winch to put on it but the instructions do not tell me where to mount the winch contactor. Does anybody have a good idea of where to mount it.
