searched this forum and can`t find the answer. Can I use Castrol Syntec synthetic 0W20 in my 04 400 Sportsman? I know I don't use regular car oil in my street bike, as I has detergants, I think? Does this synthetic oil have detergants or something else my quad will not like?

The new Polaris spec oil is full synthetic 5W50. I run Quaker State 5W50.

You have an oil filter, you need detergents.

Shell T6 5w40 will work well too. Its full synthetic, reasonably priced and readily available. I use it in my quads and motorcycle. It meets motorcycle specs.

Being that Polaris does not have a wet clutch, you don't need to worry about a JASO spec'd oil.

I second Rotella T6.
