No it doesn't take 5 quarts.. It takes 5.5 quarts. At least by the manual.May take a tad less.. You can use any good synthetic oil suitable for atvs and motorcycles. 0w40,5w40,5w50,etc. NO car oil as it can cause the clutch plates to slip. This oil will say "energy conserving" and has friction modifiers to help on mileage, but plays the devil with some clutch plates on motor cycles and some atvs.

I had the engine rebuilt two winters ago, did the transmission job last winter and it looks like I am tearing back into it again. Any suggestions as to what I need to replace? I got a lot of help last time from a user name PolarisTech. He is a whole lot of information bundled up into one man. I can hold the shifter into reverse and keep it from popping out of gear but I feel clicks. Almost like something is jacked up internally. Any advice is welcome.
Can you tell me what you did to fix it?
