What weight oil is the recommended XPS Synthetic blend oil summer grade 293600121 for the outlander? Is this,a 4 stroke 5w30w? I would rather use amsoil.

From what I understand. The summer blend is 10w40 where the all season is 0w40

I would think you would want a thinner oil for colder temps to ease cranking.

The first number is the viscosity at cold and really is relevant in the first few minutes. The top number is for the high end temps. "Thinnner" is not really the right way to describe how oil functions. Yes, you can use a summer grade however it's best to follow the owner's manual. There is no way "0" vs "10" is going to make a difference on the motor. 40 vs 30 could as the 40 weight is made for the high temps that these motors run at.

Also, unless your bike sits outside in the cold, it should always start just fine with almost any weight.

There is no wet clutch so you can't use that nor 2 stroke oil. Your manual states what the requirements are but it pretty well covers all oils now a days. I'm not much in believe that oil should have additives though.
