I have heard a lot of people using Rotella in many types of side by sides. I am going to have make that decision soon also. Still have a warranty on mine also.
How about the diff fluids? I change mine nearly every time I change my oil.
Depends, my machines manual says change all fluids annualy.. "and to use ONLY Polaris fluids) Again.. Polaris doesnt make fluids.. just pays to put there sticker on someone elses bottles.. depending on how your using your machine and how often your changing your oil you might be overdoing it a bit..
The manufacturer doesnt put a timeframe on there diff of or gearbox.. just says "annualy"
My pickup gets fresh diff fluid every 30,000 miles and thats very conservative.. you do the math.....
Polaris just like many others wants more customer dollars.. They dont make coolant, or oil, or any other fluid.. but by putting there name on someone elses product and charging you $26.00 for two quarts of oil or $10-14 for a oil filter.. tehres a HUGE profit margin to be made..
Do a little research and youl find that your paying out the "ying-yang" for nothing special at all.. keep dollars in your pocket, cross-reference fluids, filters, ect and keep some cash.. put it towards your next machine
Ive not bought a "powersports/OEM" filter for my Ranger, YZF R1, Ninja, Garden tractor in 3-4 years now.. and all these machines live healthy long lives on HDEO motor oil and automotive car filters.. fyi, Rant over
