Use ATF, you'll be just fine. You can use darn near any type of oil though.

Yep, use a good ATF. I like the sythetic stuff, and you get a whole quart for a fraction of what the Polaris lube costs, and it is enough to do several sleds.

I put in ATF this time. Dealers around here puts in 10W-30 engine oil.
IMO, more important that the oil is not full of water and metal shavings than what type is used...

Small metal shavings are normal. Chucks of a gear or chain are bad.

There should be a safe range on the stick. Keep oil level in safe range. It is not normal to loose lots of oil after one tank of fuel.

Switching to transmission fluid will have less shavings.
