Question oil filter

I have never changed the oil on my new atv. So I started looking for the filter the other day and didn't see it. Would ya'll help me out? Also where is the best place to buy the best oil and filter? Don't really care about price when it comes to my atv, since I put it through so much crap.

What kind of ATV do you have? 420 Rancher?

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.

If it's the 420 Rancher, the oil filter is located on the right side of the engine, toward the front under a small cover. The cover has three bolts holding it on. Be sure that you watch how the old filter comes out and don't put the filter in backwards or it will block oil flow to the top of the engine and damage the engine.

Yes sorry about that. I do have a 2010 Rancher 420 4x4 SRA ES. Is the Amsoil oil and K&N filter better than stock? What weight oil is the best? I live in Louisiana so never really stays cold here. Also does anyone know the right part number oil filter for my atv, I have saw where there are 2 different types and I would really hate to get the wrong one.

You're going to open up a can of worms with that one. Nobody can really tell you what is better, but many can tell you what NOT to use. I believe Amsoil to be superior (note the BELIEVE part). That's all anyone can tell you. Stay away from any synthetics until your break in period is over just to be on the safe side. You can't go wrong with Honda oils. That's what your quad was designed for, so until you get up to speed on the differences, I'd use whatever your quad recommends from Honda (GN4) I use K&N oil filter simply because Honda wants $8.50 for their filter and I can get K&N for $6.00 Either one should be good, but don't wait 3,000 miles between oil changes either! Change your oil often! More often if you go in mud/water etc.

I'd look at your owners manual. Never anything over their recommendations.
