Re: oil how much and what kind of oil
I had forgotten all about this but here is a copy/paste of what I have.

I cut/paste this post so I hope its legible.

Maybe easier to read…..
Polaris = Amsoil
Polaris 0W-40 Premium Synthetic = Amsoil Formula 4-Stroke OW-40 (AFF) ENGINE OIL
Polaris Synthetic Gearcase Lubricant (AGL) part #2873602 = Amsoil Series 2000 Synthetic Chaincase Lube (TCC) TRANSMISSION AND TRANSFER CASE
Polaris Premium ATV Angle Drive Fluid part #2871653 = Amsoil Severe Gear 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Oil (SVG) REAR GEAR CASE
Polaris Premium Demand Drive Hub Fluid part #2871654 (old part #-new #2876251, my edit) = Amsoil Shock Therapy Light (STL) FRONT CASE-DEMAND DRIVE.
The bold I added to (hopefully) help make it easier to understand.
The last item #2871654 is the Polaris part # for the hub fluid as listed in my 2004.5 Sportsman 700EFI, and our 2005 Sportsman 800EFI owners manuel. The RZR manuel has a # of 2876251. Having been in the parts business and seen how easy numbers are changed, could be simple a different vendor, or something else. Anyway, I would feel good using what Amsoil has recommended. Also found many have used the Amsoil 75W-90 gear lube without problems in everything but the engine. That is what I did on my two Sportsmen. I’m thinking since I’ve come across this that I may change them to follow Amsoil recommendations. A lot of discussion has been shared on this subject. Not trying to create more, but this information from Amsoil is important and can benefit many.
I thought about becoming a "Positive Thinker" but I was pretty sure it wouldn't work!
