I've used the Honda Gn4 10/40 and 30, but switching to Mobile 1 synthetic. Have yet to worry about radiator fluid. What kind of air filter do you have? A lot of riders including me go with the Uni filter

If you bought quad used and never looked at filter, I'd be doing that before next ride. And don't forget to get filter oil when you pick up the new uni filter. I like the PJ1 in the spray can.

I used amsoil and Honda oil filters. Uni air filter with UNO filter oil. The uni oil is super tacky and doesn't run off into the bottom of the air box like some of the others I've used.
The best thing you can do for your bike is oil changes an air filter maintenance.

I will switch to that next time, cause my air box drain plug is red!
