My 08 calls for 10 40 so thats what I run.

Agreed

10W40 is what should be used.

2005- 2010 models

Kawi requires 10W-40 for front diff gear box on ALL of their KVF models (BF & Prairie) from 2002-2010+. Heavier/more viscous hypoid gear oil will seize up the spinder gears.

I use synthetic though... Mobil 1. It only takes 1/2 qt or so.

yea when i change my oil in the motor it takes 2 1/2 quarts and the last 1/2 quart goes into the front diff.. i change it about every 200 miles

Synthetic is the bomb! When I did my first oil change I used Mobil 1 and it started the easyest it ever has so its gotta be as good in the f diff.

10/40 kawi is what we use in our own atvs and customer rides.
