I have a 2015 CanAm Outlander L 450 purchased new in 2016 with 5 year warranty. OEM oil is available as 0w40 full syn or 5w40 blend and both are pricey. Thus far I have used the 5w40 blend which has no API donut but "meets" SM. 2015 manual says to use 5w40 SG, SH, or SJ oil if OEM oil is unavailable. I think the 2019 manual states SM.

1. Do these ATVs use a wet clutch? I think they probably don't if OEM oil is SM rated.

2. What alternative oils are you all using? I'm thinking of using Castrol Edge black bottle 5w40 or Mobil Delvac 1 5w40 since these are API SN and are the specd weight. (I think Rotella T6 opted out of the SN rating to keep high Zn/P)

Is that belt drive? If so like our Maverick every component has its own lube. Ours calls for 5w40 in the engine and I use whichever is on sale.

It does have the belt drive. Mine is the single cylinder 450 which holds an additional quart than the 500 and the 450 specs no additional gear box lube like the 500 does.

Where do you usually get your filters? I may try to get one at NAPA.

Looked at Rotella T6 5-40 Syn today at Walmart and it says it JASO ma/ma2. About $20 gal.

I don't see why I need a 5w oil. I don't play if it's less than 75f.
