wow, sorry for my long delay.Thanks for the offer Blueline. I'm sorta new. I did use the info on this site to mount a #2500 winch. Had some contactor placement issues but advice here saved the day. Now I'm at 18.5 hours on my new 2010 850 EPS Touring and it is time to do my first oil change. I know Polaris doesn't make oil or filters--they just private label what some other mfg. makes. What I want to know Blueline (and I know you work for a dealer) is what is a comparable filter and oil (weight and viscosity) that will work for my new ride that I can get at the local walmart or Tractor Supply? I'm also looking for a filter the is easy to put on and take off. I have heard the PoPo filter is a little difficult to get on/off. Any advice on a filter wrench. First change, just want to start right and get right tool for the long haul.
From a Polaris web sitei dont know who manufactures the polaris oil, they wont tell us.
Every manufacturer that makes equipment with an engine has its own name on an oil bottle. That includes all the major auto manufacturers, the makers of motorcycles, ATV's, snowmobiles, farm equipment, you name it, they all have oils. But none of these equipment manufacturers actually make an oil. They sell oil to make more money, and then they often price these oils well above the going rate for competitive lubricants because, like Polaris, they can specify or create the impression that only their oil be used in their equipment.Lube-Tech is a leading supplier of lubricants, solvents and chemicals for numerous applications. Lube-Tech blends Polaris Performance Lubricants to exacting Polaris specifications and also provides the Polaris Racing program with products such as race fuel, shop cleaners and solvents.
Hi Russ,Hello Folks,
I recently bought my first ATV. I never rode one in my life.
1.) Where the heck is the fuel shutoff valve. I looked in the manual and it said it under the front locker.
2.) I've read all the warning labels about how this is a one person vehicle. Is Polaris just being overly consevative or am I putting myself and partners at a huge risk.
3.) Can someone simplify the manual for me as far as when I should be in AWD or 2WD. When to be in High Gear and Low.
