I'm kinda in the same boat as you. I'm trying to remove the transmission and to so you have to remove both drive shafts, however niether one of them will pop out. I have tried "pulling sharply" on both drive shafts. I have also tried rigging something to the shaft ang jacking against frame. Nothing seems to be working.I dont want to damage the cv joints or the tranny case. I'm not sure what to do. I searched this forum and didn't come up with any answers. I guess my next option is a trip to my local polaris dealer, the mechanics there are always helpful, so stay posted i'll let you know if I find something out.
