'04 500 HO - what oil and where?

I am servicing my '04 Sportsman 500 HO that I just bought. I downloaded the Polaris owner's manual and it is vague and confusing.

The chart on page 76 says to use Polaris Premium Drive Hub Fluid. The description on page 84 says to use Polaris Synthetic Gear case Lube (80w-90 gear lube). What oil do I use and where the heck is the fill hole?

Same machine, the manual shows a transmission dipstick and fill port. I have looked and looked and cannot find this on my machine. Where do I fill the tranny?

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

FYI - machine was born 10/03 so don't exactly know if it is an '04 or '04.5

Lube Chart for All Polaris ATVs

The dipstick for the tranny is on the right side. Look just forward of the axle kinda tucked back behind the rear brake caliper....you should see a round plastic piece. Mine is bright yellow. that's the dipstick and filler hole.
Do you have a lift? I jack mine up to do a full service. Much easier with the wheels off. Gives you better access to the grease zerks. Good investment.
