ATV Engine Oil

Got a booklet coming with a comparison of many ATV oils. Will be an interesting read. Before it gets here, I would like to poll what brand you all are using. Then see how these compare and rate when i receive the report.

I've used other but right now I've been using Kawasaki oil. In this month's quad magazine there was a new oil that is supposed to help prevent and/or protect against moisture build up or water in your oil. Anybody heard of it or used it? I'll look this evening at my magazine to see if I can find the name of it.

I use Kawasaki oil. When I need to flush the water out of the crank case I use Havoline until it's clear then go back to the Kawi oil.

Marvel mystery oil. It's in a red bottle and works pretty much like sea foam.
