What oil is everyone using?

Just curious what type of oil people are using for the 700. I just bought mine and want to do an oil change soon. I had a Raptor 660 before and used Mobil 1 synthetic oil (non-energy conserving) 15w-50 because of the wet clutch.

I'm assuming the 700 has a wet clutch, correct? I saw a Mobil 1 10w-40 synthetic 4-stroke oil specifically designed for wet clutches. I might try that.

Anything else people use?

I use Honda GN4 oil (10w 30) I've used the Honda GN4 oil in everything I've ever had with a wet clutch, and never had a problem with it. It exceeds the manufacturer's requirements for any bike or atv out there, and costs way less than the synthetics.

Truth is any oil with the right API rating will work just fine. Just check the label and pick your flavor. (Mobil 1 synthetic exceeds manufacture's requirements too.)

No, HP4 is the conventional.
