Hello all, probably a silly question but i`m using a 2.8 b reg fourtrak for minor offroad use only and was wondering what oil and how much should be used?

Thanks

Its about 5l, but poor it in slow or it will over flow out of the rocker cover. Keep checking with the dipstick when you get around 5l.

The manual lists 15w-40 as the general use one.

Edit: Make sure you use mineral or semi-syn oil, not fully syn.

10-40 will be fine. It prob is 6l, but just want to keep checking because you don't want to overfill it.
