I'm changing the oil in 2015 Rancher 4x4 DCT IRS. I'm seeing a lot of conflicting arguments about which oil type is best. 10w30 vs 10w40. Also about using conventional or synthetic. Any suggestions? Also I live in the south with little cold weather.

If its not cold where your at get 10-40.
I'd stick with conventional honda oil or something very close to it.
The DCT is basicly an auto car transmission, they're fussy about what oil weight you run. If it was a foot shift I'd recommend rotella 15-40.

I live in South Carolina so the absolute coldest we see is upper 20's in the dead of winter and I don't ride then anyway. My local Walmart has 10w30 full synthetic atv oil. That's why I was wondering about synthetics with the dct.
