Smile Oil Change

Posted this on another forum but need info on oil changes. Getting ready for my first oil change on my 09 Teryx. What weight and brand is best. Synthetic or regular dino oil? Are there any grease fittings on this chassis? Thanks Bob S.

Every 100 hours?? I'll make sure not to buy yours when you get done with it! My car is over 2 years old, 2000 miles, 81hrs and my oil has been changed atleast 5 times. I say every 20hrs since all it uses is close to 2qts to fill it and these seem to run hot and I am always reving it out.

100 miles is a tank of gas just cause its diry doesn`t mean it`s breaking down changing oil often is harder then runing it longer look up mobile 1 on google on oil test
