oil grade?

I have a 1998 Grizzly 600.
About to change the oil & the dealer recommended 20w50.
Owners manual says
5w30 (-20 to 0 C)
10w30 (-10 to 35 C)
20w40 (5 to 45 C)

20w50 seems a little heavy to me. So I was looking for 10w30 or 20w40. I am unable to find those particular grades with the correct specs. 10w40 seems to be readily available. What grades are you using for summer riding?
thanks

amsoil 0w-40 for me.


would using 20w-50 dyno oil in a 700 be a good or bad thing?

Thanks to all who replied on the oil grade issue.
Since 10w40 is the most readily available in my area I will go with that.

I see you live in Ottawa. I don't know how cold it gets there or if you even use your quad in the winter but might want to consider going with a 0W for very cold winter use.
