So how much is this Xado a quart because all the part stores around here are going to stop carrying RP in 10-40 because it doesn't sell actually all of the 10-40 oils so im buying up all the royal purple I can get and its going for six bucs a quart to get rid of it but its getting hard to find an the 10-40 in there motorcycle oil is fifteen a quart.

I'm going to run Cerma in mine, it retails for around 16 a quart but is leaps and bounds above RP or Lucas.

The original founders went there separate ways and had a legal dispute. My girl friend is a rep for them, currently you have to get it either from a dealer or straight from the company. I checked and 10w-30 retails for 13.32. 10w-40 wasn't on her price list but were checking on the exact price. If any one is interested in getting some get me a message and you can order it through me. It would be shipped directly from the company to your door.

Depends on temperature where you ride. It hardly ever gets to freezing here and certainly gets HOT in the summer so 20-50 is all I run in everything I have. There's a chart in the manual and it's here some where but can't find it at moment.

Ye I seen the chart. I also run 20-50 in my bike. I just didn't know if it was an advantage having lighter weight oil.

No advantage to changing it in my mind unless you will be riding in cold weather. I think it's best to follow the chart. If need be change oil in spring and fall to accommodate the temp changes.

I always ran Amsoil in my Raptor. I had some left so I used that up in the Brute until recently I switched to Mobil 1 4T 10-40. Switched front diff too, but I run 20-50 in that.
Rear diff runs Kendall Hyken 052. I have 5gal that was given to me by my work, so that should last me a long time!

Been running Mobil 1 in my vehicles for the last 10+ years. I've never had a failure due to oil. One of my trucks even drank some water and mud while running M1. Internals still looked like new and put quite a few miles on that truck afterwards. I'm still not sure why I ran Amsoil in my Raptor instead of Mobil, but I never had a problem with that either.

If anyone is interested, I have some Cerma oil left from MudNats that we would rather sell than ship back to the company. I ran the oil and engine treatment both in mine during the trip. Not one problem and I pegged my temp guage out on one trail not paying attention. Over 280 and she still had no issues, at least until we went upside down in the sand pit.
