Anyone know anything about the BRP oil? No oil weight or specs available..... Acceptable substitute?

it calls for an SM rated oil. in the 5/40 for winter weather, my MAX has T6 in it. i change it once a year or around 1500 miles.
i'd think any that are SN/SM rated and good for you climate, you'll be just fine.

these engines get hot once stuck..I've always been good with D1 5/40 year round...that's the older CJ-4 version..been looking at M1 10/40 as a replacement now that D1 went CK.

I'm currently running amsoil ATV 0w-40 which is a crossover to the BRP oil, only difference is the 0w part.

I picked up some older Delvac 1 ESP 5w-40 (SM) at Canadian Tire recently. That's what I plan on running in mine.
