Not the regular oil thread

Would you top up with 20w 50

I put in 10w30, I was going to do my next oil change with 10w 40.
Im looking at going riding tomorrow and was going over the quad and it is low. I have not ordered another case yet and 20w 50 is available locally

It's OK to top off with 20w 50, as long as it's the right type of oil... for use with wet clutches. Just regular auto oil should not be used... contains additives that can harm a wet clutch or ruin it. Make sure you drain your old oil properly and check oil level properly also. It might help if people understood oil weights and just what 10w 40 means. In "Sin City" (Vegas), I doubt you'd need the properties of 10w or 20w oil... mainly used for low temp starting help.
