Default Engine oil / Transmission Oil / Gear Oil

2006 Scrambler 500 4X4

Can I use regular oil in the engine? Like Regular Mobil 1 auto oil?

How about the Tranny? What's the best oil?

How about the front gear case? What's the best oil?

I was thinking "Mobil Clean 5000 10W-40" Pretty close in weight...

Is there something else I need to worry about besides weight?

Shouldn't have a wet clutch, so it should be fine.....

I use the Rotella in my Scrambler golf cart. Works just fine. Any oil will work as long as it has similar weights.

The gear case I used the 80w-90. I think Polaris recommends chaincase oil.

The front gearcase should be the same as the transmission since it doesn't have the 4wd activating parts in it (still in the hubs in 06).

So, is the transmission just a gear case? Very similar to the front gear case... I was kinda thinking like a car tranny but I guess the tranny on the scambler is really the belt, pulleys, clutch, etc...


"since it doesn't have the 4wd activating parts in it (still in the hubs in 06)."
Does this mean the gear case is ALWAYS turning? So, even is not in 4WD mode...

Yes, that's correct on both parts. The transmission is simply a gear case and the front gear case is always turning. One way to demonstrate this is to put the machine on ice and with it tied to something, give it throttle in 2wd. The shafts will spin that go to the front hubs, but the tires won't. When they moved the activating parts to the centralized hillard, the shafts do not spin when you do this.
