Grizzly 660 oil

I am changing oil for the first time since I bought the grizz. I am looking at two different kinds of oil. The valvoline atv oil or the Rotella conventional oil, I think it's 15-40 weight. Which one would ya'll choose? If you would choose the valvoline, what weight. they have 10w40, or 20w50? Thanks!!!

'05 Grizzly 660. 27"Swamplites. EPI Clutch kit. K&N filter. Dynojet kit. Viper Max 3500lb winch.

    Valvoline ATV.  I just put this oil in my bike and I'm very happy with it so far and it's not as expensive as Yamalube.  Pick up an oil filter while you are at it.  I run the Purolator Pure One oil filter filter # PL14610 or the Bosch 3300 or 3323.  The 3323 and the Purolator are a tad longer than the stock Yamaha filters and if they will fit in your bike I would run them.

    It depends on the weather climate as to what weight of oil to run.
    But for summer weather, 20W50 is what you should run....and that is stated right in the owners manual.
    10W30 is used during the winter.

    In my owners manual, 10W30 is good from about 10 degrees to about 110 degrees and 20W40 is good from about 40 degrees to about 120 degrees.  So really unless you live in the desert, 10W30 or 10W40 will work just fine for all year round use.

    Just as long as it's not energy conserving oil, it should work.  I don't use an oil unless it states that it is for wet clutch operation like Yamalube, Valvoline ATV or Royal Purple Motorcycle.  Those are the only ones I have used so I know they are for wet clutch applications.
