Since getting my base 2018 used in February, I have put 37.2 hours on my Kodiak per the hour meter. Just curious what others have in hours on their kodiaks.

My 2016 Kodiak 700 Camo Base has 96 hours.

Wife's 2016 Kodiak 700 Green Base has 67 hours.

Mine is used to plow which accounts for most of the extra hours.

Both have the stock tires and still have good tread...but I am tempted to upgrade tires.

Owners manual recommended changes.
Miles..150, 800,1600, 2500
OR
Hours.. 20, 80,160, 160.
The recommended changes are every 320 hrs or 3200 miles I would change more often than that but every 50 hours is very compulsive.

The 320 hrs rec is after 12 months. Seems too long every 150 would seem reasonable

My kodiak 2016 has 399 hours, oil changed every 50 hours, coolant fluid every two years
I change my oil every 50 hrs because I am always pulling something around on my forest property. Trailer full of pnumatic prunner with compressor and generator, dr tow behind mower, dr 18 hp chipper, 34 ton log splitter. It gets used about 100 hours a year. I also us synthetic oil. I do alot of stopping and starting. Short trips. Mine is a utility version kodiak 700 with an hour meter. It's a great machine. Itt 26" mud lite 11 and 12" with wench. Been thinking about getting a set of those aggressive zilla type it's I have a bit of traction problems in winter time if it weren't for the ruts going across a hill me and the trailer would slip sideways.

I'm not a big fan of the original ITP Mudlite. They don't seem to have the same level of traction nor durability as many popular 6 plys out there.

Also bigger more aggressive lugs doesn't not necessarily equate to better traction. My warn down 4500+ miles PitBull Growlers ( 1" lug new,
mine were worn down to 0.68") would climb very steep and rough hills in 2 wd, where my at the time basically new 1.18 lug Zillas never once climb the same Hill without being in 4wd. I repeated this test 10 times. Always the same results. In these rough, dry steep hills my old warn down Growlers would put the the new 600 miles Zillas to shame

No doubt that changing your oil frequently is better than the opposite. I'm sure your engine loves you for it.
Most people probably don't require change as often. All good. Gotta love the commitment to excellence.

As to tires...like picking a date for Saturday night... so many excellent choices! For my usage the Kenda bearclaw HTRs & Pitbull Growlers are tip of the spearmint. Just another biased opinion.
