Anyone know what type-weight of oil or gear lube the chain case lubricant is for Polaris sleds? Dealer wants $11 for a quart(twice what I paid a year ago)! Must be an alternative out there, such as Mobil One? Anyone use Arctic Blue products?

Torco makes a great synthetic product for $7.00 a pint. Personally, I don't put a price cap on quality lubricants! Using superior lubricants and sensible maintenance should give peace of mind.

In my race sled I run automatic transmission fluid and in my mountain sled I run a good synthetic gear grease. Riley
