The dealer I used recomended synthetic

I did use syn Mobil 1 For the past month and ride every weekend with no issues. It seems to start easier than with the stock oil.

i switched to valvoline atv oil again, i cant justify spending 40 bucks a pop on a oil change for the brute when it doesnt even last long lol. these rear seals and changing them make me jsut change all the fluids too and might as well stay with normal stuff.....

Just found out Valvoline wont make an atv synthetic because the friction modifiers in synthetic can harm the wet clutch / brake system.

valvoline makes Valvoline 4T. It's a synthetic blend oil.
"Valvoline 4T Premium Technical Specification:
Synthetic Blend, SAE 20W50, JASO T903, GRADE MA2

Descripton:
Ultimate Power Output, Ultimate Engine & Clutch Protection. Valvoline 4T Premium has a synthetic blend, thermally stable formula and optimal frictional characteristics. This ensures engine protection under High-RPM, High-Temperature conditions. It facilitates Maximum Power Transfer & Smooth Gear-Shift for protecting the wet clutch.







but you are right the "Valvoline 4-Stroke ATV Oil©" is not synthetic.

I use Silkolene Pro 4T it's fully synthetic by Fuchs and is supposed to have an additive that helps with dry cylinders that have been sitting for a month or so to prevent a dry start up. I believe it is ester but it's quite expensive around 20$ a liter. I've been using it and change my oil two maybe three times a year but am looking for something a little cheaper that is comparable if anybody knows of one...

Preebsd...
Just went by what they had on their web sight . Do a search on Valvoline synthetic ATV oil. they don't offer it for ATV use due to the wet clutch.I used #VV749= 4 stroke oil, just thought it was interesting ,cause I used to only run Mobil 1. now with 20 hours on the new motor I wanted to give it some proper break in time B4 adding anything to the engine like synthetics or Lucas or even those metal coating gimmicky additives. Wonder if they really work, I don't have a dyno handy to find out.
