Hi, just picked up a 2014 sportsman 850. I was looking for a wix oil filter and noticed they haven't updated yet for the 14. Anybody know if the 13' model #51358 will work? Also I use amsoil 0w-40 in my grizzly, will this be ok to use? I notice polaris recommends 5w-40. Thanks

Nothing changed from 13-14 on the 850 in the filter world. I haven't seen the book on the 14 yet, did they change from the 2w-50 or 5w-50 that is the PS4? It changes every few years it seems.

most 50W oils have shown to shear fast..bringing down to a 40w and even close to 30W in time...I dont know why...there is a used oil analysis of the polaris 50W oil on line..it sheared bad...but most 50's do..That being said ..any top name synthetic in 0_40W will do fine...Shell...Quaker state..Mobil 1 ...Valvoline ..Amsoil..Castrol....most of these oils are formulated to run 7500-15000 miles in a car or truck....we only use it for 50-60 hours before we dump it...

I use Shell Rotella T6 5-40 and been happy with my drains...still kind of translucent and not black...
