Ever since ive had my quad ive only put Castrol 10-40 synthetic oil on it.The parts sales man at the dealership said it was on of the best plus it was synthetic.Im just curious what all you other Lakota owners use on your quads(brand/thickness)? Also is the K&N oil filter is as good or better than the genuine Kawasaki oil filter? Thanks in advance for your comments,experiences,or ideas.[img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/img]

We use Rotella in everything. Trucks, tractors,Raptor, Lakota, two Wolverines and the sand rail. We have been using it since 1996 in the trucks and tractors. F-350 diesel 4x4 has 196,000 miles and is going strong.

I just use Kawachem 10w40.It's cheap and it's what the owners manual calls for.As far as the filter goes,I used to use the Kawasaki filter but I was getting tired of paying over $7 for one little filter.I found emglo filters in the JC Wittney catalog for $2.35 and bought a bunch of them.I have no complaints.

I use Bel Ray 10w-40 Semi senthetic. Never had a prob and seems to work very well.

Vluc,
So what's the story with the ex? Likin it? Ride the Lakota at all anymore? We'll have to meet up at the Badlands b4 too long.
