What are you guys using? The manual calls for a 5W-50 synthetic but I can't seem to find any at any of my local auto parts stores.
Im a Amsoil Dealer Just dont know what arctic cat will do if there is a failureWe use AMSOIL in our units. Amsoil 10W-40 motorcycle oil, wet clutch approved. We race our units almost all year without changing the oil (if we don't have to!) and it's test proven. Just keeping an eye on things. The viscosity break down is great. Hope this might help!!!!
Amsoil does not make any 5w50 oilBelow, is a quote out of the manual. The last sentence tells me I don't have to. What's funny is that when I first started researching this I called my AC dealer. The parts dude said, "oil is oil, just use any synthetic."

It might be. I've had it up to CK a couple times now. I took a few pics of it in the snow one trip and then about a month ago we did the back side. I don't think I posted any of those pics though.I totally understand. I would still run the AC oil.
Chance is that your machine in the Crown King trip pictures.
I was taking some pics of a creek crossing while a bunch of UTV's crossed over the rocks and this XTZ came through and someone yelled go Chance. I only assumed it may be you. Take a lookIt might be.
