About the only ones that need a 10 hr service is the dealer.

All you need is to have is oil you use meet their requirements, that's it, end of story. If they (the dealer) tell you differently, it could be construed as against the law and at best unethical of them to tell you that. Generally, the public is unaware that it is illegal for a vehicle manufacturer to tie the warranty of its product to the use of the manufacturers own lubricant. They cannot force you to buy something branded by them (BRP) that helps them make money, to keep your warranty intact.

I didn't use any BRP oils when I did my 10 hour service. I used Mobil 1 synthetic for the differentials and gear box and Amsoil for the engine oil. I would have used Amsoil for my differentials and gear box but I got such a great deal on the Mobil 1 stuff I couldn't pass it up and I am a Amsoil preferred customer.

Does anyone know the part number on a wix oil filter. I use these on everything and would like to use one on this.

Any help is greatly appreciated,

Try cross referencing the KN152 or HF152. Those both fit the Maverick.
Thanks man, I'll try that appreciate your help.

AMEN BROTHER!!!!!!!!!!!! I have seen this occur twice with my own eyes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they just dnt care, some dealers have a few teens working who has no clue even.....other dealers have 15 year mechanics working on brp items mainly and still don't do the service but charge you for it...sad as hell...
I prefer to work on my own stuff too. I just don't trust the dealer to do the job right if they even did it. That 10 hour service is expensive and a money maker for the dealer and they can skip the majority of the tasks and you would never know.

that is correct, the only way they can say you must use our product or void warranty is if they give it to you! free
