I have always changed my oil with Silkolene Mineral based oil that Bombardier calls for. Does anyone out there use any other types of oil in their DS650s? Does all Can-AM/Bombardier atvs require mineral based oil?

I've always used Mobil 1 20W50 VTwin Motorcycle Oil. I know it's an overkill. But I have NO engine issues at all. I also use a stainless steel cleanable oil filter. It goes down to 60 microns, and I change the oil and clean the filter about every 20 hours of engine time. I put one of those computers on the DS to monitor hours, coolant temperasture, RPM's, and MPH. I had the DS up to 71 MPH on a hard packed road, nice and straight for about a mile and a half. I came up behind my son without him knowing, because he always beats me out of the hole with his 450R Honda. He could not catch me at all! We laughed after we stopped. He said to me, " where the hell were you going!" I said "right here!" I don't always ride like that, I felt froggy. So I leapped, then I was satisfied. I have't done it since. I proved my point, a stock DS may not beat a 450R out of the hole that has a cam, and an exhaust on it. But once the DS is wound up, it's hard to catch. (:D
