I use Honda GN4, but whatever kind you use, make sure it's for wet clutches or your clutch will start slipping.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

You can use any oil that meets the manufacturers specifications AND is NOT an oil marked with "ENERGY CONSERVING" on the container. Those oils are made to use in applications with no shared system with a clutch. If you have a engine/transmission combination that shares the oil, The additives in the "energy conserving" oils will cause severe slippage in the clutch. One good oil is the Mobil Delvac 1300. I have been using it in my VTX 1800 for years and it performs very well. It is also much less $$$ than the Honda oil and exceeds their spec recommendations.

I run Shell Rotella Synthetic, 5W-40 in all my atvs.....and my Yamaha motorcycle. It is now JASO-MA rated for motorcycles and atvs.

The Delvac oil is also a good oil for atvs.

I use Amsoil 4-stroke Full Synthetic 0w-40. It works to substitute it for 5w-30, 5w-40 and 10w-40 oil. Because it is synthetic, it offers protection down to -30 degrees F during the winter. The best (in my opinion) all season Oil you can buy.
