In the gade I'm currently running BRP's Summer Blend in the motor, Royal Purple 75w90 in the front/rear diff, and Royal Purple 75w140 in the transmission.
As soon as I can find somebody to hook me up I plan on swapping everything to Amsoil.

No probs with the RP so far. Lots of people use it. Only reason I still have Canam motor oil is bc I bought this bike brand new and wanted to get some miles on it with before I swapped to something else......that way just in case something were to happen to my engine they couldn't blame it on me using oil that didnt come with their name on the bottle. The main thing your gonna see if you swap to RP is a cut in the cost of oil....the oil meets and even exceeds many of the factory requirements so its not in any way going to harm your motor.

Sounds like its probably just your Maintainance Light....comes on after a factory programmed number of hours for regular maintainance. I've read up alot about that, and alot of people dont worry about it. The dealer will have to clear the light for you, unless you know somebody that has BUDS software.

I'm not a RP fan, mostly because of how they hype it up & yet multiple independant studies have shown it does nothing beyond what any other synthetic does, actually Amsoil & couple of the other high-end oils are better.

I run the BRP stuff. Beat on your dealer a little, they make more $ on fluids than most realize. - I just got a BRP oil change kit and three bottles of BRP gear oil for $80. Still a bit expensive for just fluid changes, but cheap enough to not have any second guessing any possible warranty issues on a brand new machine.

^X2 on the RP, I'd prefer Amsoil hands down, but its hard to come by in my area

Only reason I switched to RP in the tranny and diffs is because they were due for service and RP was a much cheaper alternative lol. I'll flush it out and replace with Amsoil next go around and wont stray from that once I get it in there, as well as in the motor.

run RP in my brute and ive noticed it to run a lil cooler. to me most all oil is the same. what a bunch of folks dnt knw is that most brand oil all comes out the same tank with jus a different lable on the bottle. ive read that if u let amsoil set up it will seperate bt dnt knw for a fact.

^^ I was going to say this but thought Id get into a big spat but.. hes right. Most of the oil brands you swear by are practically exactly the same it's just like everything else, 1 big company's owns everything and has a bunch of sub companies beneath it.

How you can tell tho is the SAE rating on the back of the jug (the usually red circle with info in it) There rated usually SM or SN for regular oil and different labels for others but, the farther down the alphabet that second letter is the better quality oil it is.
