That is the exact kit I am going to buy for my 50 hours oil change. I think you can maybe exchange the 0w-40 for 10w-40, but I think its a couple bucks more.

10W-40 is slightly more than the 0W-40 (<$1/quart)

I recommend Amsoil ...The most available oil would be Mobil1 4T (not Mobil1 for automobiles). This goes in the motor and the front diff. As far as the rear, you need a wet brake compatible hydraulic/transmission fluid. Local tractor supply stores carry it and I think NAPA does too. You might have to buy a 5 gallon pail of it though. You MUST insure it is not straight hydraulic fluid!!! It is way too thin and will destroy your diff.

Or you could go to your Kawi dealer and ask the parts guy to sell you the exact Kawi oil and filter they use for the 50 hour oil change. This way its on record you used the correct oil if there should be a warranty issue down the road. Thats what I did!
