There’s no getting around the routine maintenance that your Polaris General requires. If you want to get the most out of your Polaris General, it’s crucial that you are regularly changing your Polaris General’s oil, fluids, and filters. You can either pay for mechanics or the dealership to do this for your, or you can give yourself the tools you need to take your Polaris General’s oil changes, fluid changes, and filter changes into your own hands. Stocking up on fresh oil, fluids, and filters means you can perform this maintenance more frequently and for less money.
The easiest and most cost-effective way to change your Polaris General’s oil is by ordering an aftermarket UTV oil change kit like the Polaris General XP 900 | XP 1000 5w-50 Complete Quick Oil Change Kit by Maxima or the Polaris Ranger / General Oil Change Kit by Amsoil. These oil change kits come with premium UTV engine oil as well as all the tools you need to make changing it a breeze. And if you just want to stock up on engine oil for your Polaris General, we’ve got a huge selection of premium synthetic oil that’s designed to significantly minimize wear and tear on your engine.
Your Polaris General’s air filter is equally important to regularly change as your Polaris General’s oil and fluids. A dirty or clogged air filter can lead to suboptimal and inefficient engine performance as well as bad gas mileage. If you’re looking for a good air filter replacement for your Polaris General, we recommend taking a look at the Polaris Ranger/General Blow Off Valve Filter by Aftermarket Assassins. We’ve also got a ton of synthetic grease and lubricant compounds that are specially formulated to minimize friction and wear on off-road vehicles like the Polaris General.
The frequency of your oil, filter, and fluid changes will depend on how you use your Polaris General. Many riders like to change all their oils at every scheduled service. But unless you're doing a lot of deep-water riding, you should be fine with changing your engine oil every 50 hours and your differential / transmission fluids every 100 hours, 6 months, or 1,000 miles -- whichever comes first. Although you might be able to get away with less frequent oil and fluid changes, if you know how to change the oil, filters, and fluids in your Polaris General, it's not that expensive to do it yourself. And at Everything Polaris Ranger, we've got everything you need to successfully service your own machine. With complete Polaris General service kits that come with every fluid, filter, and spark plug you need to sustain proper vehicle functionality, it has never been easier to stay on top of your side-by-side's maintenance schedule. Our oil change kits for the Polaris General are formulated with high-grade synthetic oils for top-of-the-line performance and engine protection. The viscosity of the PS-4 5W-50 oil we offer will not only lubricate and clean your engine, but also ensure that it never overheats. And with Polaris General-specific oil filters that have a built-in anti-drain back valve to prevent oil saturation, your engine oil will remain clean and particle-free until your next scheduled oil change.
In addition to oil for the engine, powertrain fluid for the front differential, and transmission differential fluid for the rear, we also carry copper washers for the drain plug. Because they are relatively soft, copper washers will deform to match both the surface of the drain port in the engine case as well as the surface of the drain plug. If you keep using the same Polaris General crush washer, it will harden due to compressive forces and won't deform enough to ensure a tight seal, thus allowing fluids to leak. While you don't want leaks, you also don't want dust, water, or dirt to get into your engine, transmission, or differentials, which is why we also offer various Polaris General seals and bearings to block contaminants from getting into the internals of your side-by-side. Whether you're leaking fluids / oil or simply adhering to the suggested maintenance guidelines outlined in your owner's manual, you can find great deals on Polaris General oil change kits, fluids, and filters at Everything Polaris Ranger!
