I have a 2006 model 500X2 and here is what I have been running for 10400 miles.

Front gearcase-Mobile 1 Synthetic ATF
Engine-Mobile 1 0W40 or Shell Rotella T 5W40 Synthetic
Transmission-5W20 motor oil
Oil Filter-Pure 14610 or 14612

All of this except the ATF can be found out any Wal Mart store. Much cheaper and just as good.

Really? I'll have to check that out next time I'm in there.... I thought they did have Mobile 1 Synth. ATF?!?! :dunno: What a rip!

If not most any parts house (or Mills Fleet Farm) will carry it.

Thanks Ronnie, been looking to get away from the pricey Polaris fluids. Is this what I would run in my 05 Sportsman 500 HO? I live in GA so I think I would use the 5w40. Is that right?

Some Wal Marts might carry it but the one I shop at doesn't.

Either oil would be fine. I live in East Texas so our heat is about the same.

Where do you live in Ga. I have an Army buddy that lives in Perkins.
