2006 660 engine oil

Hello everyone just bought a rhino 660 wanted to change the engine oil in it. I've been searching and reading about different oils you can use for it. I would like to use a 20w50 since I live in the Arizona heat but what brand do I use ? The yamalube? Or a mobile 1 or what? Any advice would help thanks for your input.

Welcome to the site, I use Rotella 15W 40 same as I use in my F250 diesel. Just be sure that whatever you use it's compatible with the wet clutch.

FLOYD, SANDI & Sadie is the co-pilot. 05 660, 3000# VENOM WINCH, LED headlight Mod, 12' led light bar RZR seats, Resi shocks, SunF 26 X 9r X 12, CUSTOM PAINT(the rescue chopper can find us know)

I ran it in my 450 rhino with no lssues, then decided to go to Rotella when it became Jaso rated.

An oil with no friction modifiers. Valolene makes a good motorcycle oil for wet clutches. Can find it at Walmart.

I did a LOT of dealer work.

Out of the many wet clutches I've had to replace, almost ALL of them had some sort of non-yamalube oil in them. This includes crotch rockets, all sorts of Yamaha ATV's, side-by-side's, dirt bikes, trials bikes, MX. It ranged from Fred's $1.00/qt junk to Amsoil to Mobil 1 to, well you name it. Got into many arguments with people.

Yamalube is tested and proven to work. It's no more expensive than other brands, so IMO, there is no reason NOT to use it. Dealer not close to you? You can order the stuff on Amazon, too, and you never have to leave the house to go get it. I've always run the manufacturer's recommended fluids and never once had any engine problems in anything I have owned, other than the race car, and that was not oil related....it was a function of too much power for the block
