I have a couple of youth quads and was wanting to switch from the polaris youth oil. I know a lot of guys are using amsoil and mobile 1 0-40. Will this be ok in the smaller quads ?
I would recommend changing the transmission oil. Polaris AGL synthetic transmission oil is recommended by my dealer and what I use.I bought 2011 used outlaw 50 and couple of days ago I cheked transmision oil level, the oil color was kind of gray. Is this normal color? Thanks
I'm not trying to sell or promote any product, just suggesting that he changes the oil.Gray color typically indicates some moisture in the lube, likely from condensation.
Polaris dealers only recommend what makes them money. He's wants your machine to wear out, he doesn't want you to use AMSOIL, AMSOIL saves motors, AMSOIL will put him out of business. It doesn't matter if it's a ATV, M/C, bike, boat, car or truck dealership, they make the most money on service & repairs.
They have to buy 'X' amount of oil and filters to get a parts program discount for the year. This means they also have to sell them off which is where some of the deceptive sales practices may come in at certain Dealers.
For the Transmission - I would just stick to Polaris AGL Synthetic Gearcase Lubricant and Transmission Fluid.I agree with Miker about the engine oil... any engine can use any type of oil because they all work the same, exept big or small. Polaris engine oil is a good oil too, but what about transmission oil? I had moisture in transmission oil, and not all transmissions can use the same oil... So, would be ok to use automotive trans. oil?
