2015 Polaris Sportsman - Never Changed Oil

1447 Views 11 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  yooper265

I bought my ATV brand new in March 2015. The oil has never been changed and I'm looking for other's opinions on how bad that might be. It only has 75 miles on it and is mostly used for plowing my driveway and some yard work.

I know this sounds terrible but I haven't been able to take it to get serviced since I no longer have a way to transport it. I do have someone who can come to the house and change it but not before the first snowfall this Thursday.

Can I cause damage if I still used it before the oil is changed? I'll appreciate any advice on this!

Synthetic oil I hardly doubt you will or did any damage. Everything is so tight to specs now not like the old days where on the first change you had a pile of metal scrape flow out. Oil doesn’t break down from sitting. My first change on my new F150 says 100k. The oil change places still say 3k $$$
