'96 Polaris xpress 400 maintenance

I just bought an Xpress 400.I'm going to be giving this thing some badly needed maintenance work before I start riding it.I've greased all the fittings,changed transmission oil,cleaned and lubed the chain, replaced the air filter,and changed transmission oil.My question is there anything else I need to do on this thing that is easily overlooked?Does the clutch need any kind of maintenance,such as lubrication?Thanks

Thanks poposcrammy.I just ordered a dial-a-jet for it and a uni air filter.Do you know if this thing runs a mikuni vm carburetor?If it does I'm also going to order the ultimate flow optimizer from Thunder products.

ya mines got a mikuni on it so it should be the same cause everything on those older bikes are the same sides for the plastics and clutching.... also you should check your front hubs make sure there good and oiled spit them a bunch of times then take it and put it wer the screw is in the 3 o clock position and take out the lil screw if none comes out add repeat wait till a little comes out
