Does anyone know the weight of the chain case oil for a 2007 mxz 600. I was going to use something else besides the doo stuff. It's quite a bit more.

Likely 75w-90

The BRP oil history is:

413 801 900 Mineral 75W-90 GL-5
293 600 043 Synthetic 75W-90 GL-5
413 803 300 Synthetic 75W-140 GL-5
293 600 138 Synthetic

Klotz syn. Is fairly cheap compared to BRP. Dennis Kirk has some pretty good deals right now. Think I payed 9 bucks for a jug. BRP was around 20? When I looked.

Plus klotz is still a good name brand so you know you aren't cheaping out too much. All preference really.

I use Amsoil full synthetic ATF in both my sleds per recommendations on DooTalk. Not sure it's cheaper than BRP...

Correct me if wrong but haven't guys been using trans fluid for this? I stick with the BRP stuff personally. Change out at the start of each season and not worry. Compared to all of the other costs involved in the sport, I don't see a reason to cheap out on this part.

Have used the Doo stuff, Klotz, and 10w40 motorcycle gear oil. Drain, pull cover, inspect and reset chain tension every season. Never had a problem nor has either shown to be better than the other.

Just about any lubricant will work in the chain case. Many use ATF, gear oil, engine oil and of course the OEM chain case oil. Use whatever you feel comfortable with and you'll be in a better position than someone who rarely changes it. Frequency of changing is more important that oil type IMO when it comes to chain case "oil".

FWIW - I use to run BRP oil and I've recently switched to Amsoil.
