700 oil & air filter

I just bought a used 07 Griz 700 (my first ATV- and moving to CO) The owners maunal oil specs says use API service SE, SF, SG grade oil (these are automotive grades right?). It says nothing about using a motor cycle grade suitable for a wet clutch. My buddy thought this griz had a dry clutch. So will regular automotive type oil be fine?
I was also planning to put a high flow cleanable K&N air filter since I'm at 9,000 FT+ elevation or is the factory air cleaner just fine?

The factory filters fine as long as it's clean, I like K&N, but Uni is another good choice for after market filters. For oil I like Yamalube, but just make sure that the oil is the right weight and viscosity recommended for your machine for the temps you're riding in and I'm a 600 owner but I believe all these machines use a wet clutch if that is the case (sure a 700 owner will chime in) then make sure the oil is wet clutch approved and doesn't have friction modifiers that will make it slip.

Just looked up your machine and it does still have a wet clutch like mine.

With the wet clutch I would and do use only motorcycle specific oil, it only holds just over 2 quarts so it is worth using a good oil...I use Mobil 1 full synthetic but there are several great oils to use.

K&N is a great filter, and will work fine for you. For oil, You need a JASO/MA approved oil, that is wet clutch compatible. Mobil1 MT 10W40 Or Shell Rotella T 5W40 is what I use. Do not use motor vehicle specific oil as it can cause clutch slippage.

use atv oil for wet clutch, not regular automotive oil you will burn your wet cluch up.

I keep reading about Mobil 1 for the 700 Grizzly.

Is it the non-energy conserving Mobil 1 (which I believe is the high mileage version of full synthetic) in walmart or some other type of Mobil 1. Above someone mentioned Mobil 1 MT..... what is MT and who carries it?

My bad. Actually it's Mobil 1 Racing 4T 10W-40. They used to call it Mobil 1 MX4T 10W-40. You can fined it at Walmart in the auto section . Our Walmart has a small area for motorcycle and atv stuff, so that is were it is at. You can also find it at most auto parts stores as well.

The high mileage version of full synthetic Mobil, is not JAASO/MA approved, but many have used it with out issues.

For the air filter, I went with a Uni filter, I'm very happy with it, noticed a power increase also, but it filters better than a K@N. I run Arctic Cat synthetic 5w-50 in my Grizz, still looks great after 100 hours/1000 miles.
