2009 switchback 800 OIL

just bought a used Polaris sled. the guy used regular (organic) oil and I always have used synthetic.
Question: Can I mix the two or at least use up whats in the sled and when almost empty pour in my synthetic?
I appreciate your help!

I would do the second... use what's in there and refill when close to empty. Some oil additives are not compatible, although most do fine.
