I used to run Supertech synthetic 10w-30 (wallmart brand synthetic oil) in my Raptor 80. That thing will run just fine on basically any type of oil. You could probably pee in the thing and it'll work haha..
no oil filter
I would change the oil in the differential as well. You gotta get gear oil for that (80w-90, i think it is?)

I read somewhere about the clutches in these things HATING regular synthetic oil, has something to do with the anti-wear agent in them. The oil I specifically use in my 660 and dad's 700 is Rotella T6 (meant for diesels) that does not contain the anti-wear agent that causes these wet clutches to slip.
