Best oil and grease ?

I'm new to the forum and just bought an 08 rhino 700 sport. It only has 260 miles on it and since it is new to me I figured I should grease it and change the oil. What are your recommendations for the best oil and grease? Also, what other normal maintenance things should I be doing?

Amsoil motor oil.

purolator PL14610 or PL14612 oil filters from pep boys (one is longer than the other).

with only 260 miles I would not worry about the Diff fluids.

DO NOT let the rhino get low on oil, this is a major hazard for your motor.

I change mine every 500 to 600 miles, we run a lot of water and mud, it's like anything else the harder you run the more maintenance you have to do, I also change my oil at the same time. As far as diff oil you can use a good 80w90 gear oil,

green grease is good stuff and waterproof as well and can be found at advanced auto for a decent price.

I have been using Castrol Synthetic Power RS and Fram Filters. I use Mystik gear oils in everything I have. And Mystik grease .....
I change oil by season spring and fall....not miles....just me.
I also grease a lot....being a tractor guy I like grease....
IMO it's not a bad idea to change your diff fluids at your mileage if it hasn't been changed yet just to flush it in the event there might be some build metal shavings in it.
I also think the diffs have such a higher potential to have water or condensation issues just due to the nature of what Rhinos are used for.
Keep your air filter clean also....don't overlook them.
