I'm going to do the first oil change on my sportsman 850 this week and was just wondering what oil people are running.

Polaris recommends PS-4 oil 5W-50. I don't know why some are saying 0W-40
I use Mobil 1 5W-50

BC that's what my Operators Manual calls for. AND I specifically said "follow the Polaris rcommendations on lube".
I have not seen updates from Polaris on my '15 850 lube specs.

Polaris recommended 0w-40 for many years and only recently changed to 5w-50. Either one will be fine.
