valvoline atv 10w-40 in a utv

Hello, I was wondering if one could use the Valvoline 10w-40 atv oil in my prower 700 hdx. the regular arctic cat oil is so expensive. and from what I understand, this oil is wet clutch compliant.
Thanks, steve

I know what ya mean the $40 oil change kit is high, any oil that is wet clutch compliant should work. I haven't tried that oil yet, my last oil change I decided to try something else also and I used Rotella T6 Synthetic , so far it's been running great. As long as it says it wet clutch or JASO-MA compliant it should be fine.

Ok, I remain confused. My manual says to use the Arctic cat oil or a quality 0W-40. So, I picked up Mobil 1 0W-40.

I dont see anything in the specs that says anything about wet clutch but it remains the recommended oil per the manual?

If its wet clutch compatible it should say on the back of the Quart.

The actual wording in the manual,
"Although Arctic Cat ACX All Weather synthetic engine oil is the only oil recommended for use in this engine, use of any API certified SM 0W-40 oil is acceptable. "

Mobil 1 is API certified SM 0W-40.

I dont have the container to check.........

Looking at the specs here it should meet all the requirements
Meets or exceeds JASO MA specifications and API SL/SJ/SH/SG.
