Regular maintenance is key to keeping your Kawasaki Teryx running smoothly, and oil changes are a big part of that. While your machine may give you an indication that it's time for an oil change when the oil light flashes, it's important to follow the scheduled oil change intervals, fluid change intervals, and filter change intervals outlined in the owner's manual rather than relying solely on your machine to tell you. Be sure to also follow the break-in period if you have a new side-by-side, and consider changing your oils, fluids, and filters sooner if you ride in harsh conditions or put your machine through heavy use.
At Everything Kawasaki Offroad, we offer a wide range of products for your Kawasaki Teryx to make maintenance easy and effective. We have run-of-the-mill Kawasaki Teryx oil change kits with the stock-style Kawasaki Teryx oil type, as well as aftermarket Kawasaki Teryx fluids and filters.

Proper maintenance and upkeep with periodic oil changes, filter changes, and fluid changes are essential to ensuring that your rig treats you well, so make Everything Kawasaki Offroad your go-to source for all your Kawasaki Teryx fluids, oils, and filters.
When it comes to Kawasaki Teryx engine oil, there are many options available. Some riders use Pennzoil, while others prefer products like Maxima 10W-40, Mobil 1 V-Twin Full Synthetic, or Rotella T6 5W-40. During the break-in period, it's advised that you use mineral oil. After 25-30 hours of use, you can pretty much use any oil that you want so long as you change it often and it's JASO MA / JASO MA2 rated. While some riders look to the 4-ball wear test when researching oil for the Kawasaki Teryx, it's important to note that this protocol is primarily used for testing greases in the lubricants industry and doesn't simulate the action that occurs in a Kawasaki Teryx engine. Kawasaki Teryx oils with proper HTHS ratings will minimize wear, but some manufacturers add excessive amounts of zinc to their oils, which can harm the catalytic converter and emission control systems. Whether you choose Castrol 10-40 4t oil for your Teryx 4 or SAE 10W-40 Motorcycle oil by Amsoil for your Kawasaki Teryx KRX, Everything Kawasaki Offroad has you covered.
In addition to engine oil, your Kawasaki Teryx will also require gear oil when servicing the machine. This includes Kawasaki Teryx transmission fluid and Kawasaki Teryx diff fluid. For the differentials, the front has an electric diff lock, which requires 80W-90 hydraulic fluid, while the Kawasaki Teryx rear differential fluid must be of the wet brake variety. Maxima makes high-quality Kawasaki Teryx 4 transmission fluids that use friction-controlling additives and anti-wear agents to prevent wear and stop rust and corrosion.
