0w40 oil for 800 sportsman is this right

My manual for the 2007 x2 800 sportsman says to use 0w40 syn oil. Never
seen 0w of any type, is this correct. What do you use in your sportsman?

Don't forget about PS-4 / 0W50 oil...... but as lost cause said, many use Mobil 1 or Amsoil 0W40.... or your "favorite brand" 0W40 will work just fine. I've also read that alot of guys also run Rotella 5W40. The 0W40-50 is only called out for the vast range of temperatures that atv's are used in world wide on a daily basis.

On my 1st service I intend to switch to either Amsoil 0W40 or Mobil 1 0W40 and a Puropater PureOne filter.
