    m1 0w40 wet clutch?

    0W is just the cold weather rating of the oil, 0w-40, 10W-40 are both 40 wts at operating temp so a 0W will not cause one bit of problems except maybe start easier. Honda ATV's have wet clutch so its must carry the JASO MA spec.

    First Oil Change; Oil Looks Green

    Might be just a tracer dye used by the oil manufacturer to identify the oil. The company that supplies Polaris oil also supplies oil for other small engine oem's such as Arctic Cat and Husqvarna.

They were introduced to address a large market not served by the Signature Series...
