You can take the plug to any auto parts store and get an appropriate sized crush washer for about $.50 to replace the one that got dropped in the oil drain pan during a previous oil change... Or... You can get part number 3082956 from Polaris for around $5 or $6 LOL!! Polaris calls it a oil plug gasket.
Here's a link to one on ebay:

well 3 major auto parts stores and a big diesel engine place...nobody has a crush washer...the plug has a hard plastic washer on it now...
The diesel place gave me a washer with a rubber id but it still drips a little...
So I guess I bite the bullet and go to the Polaris dealer ?

Wow, I can't believe an auto parts store wouldn't have a seal washer for oil plugs in various sizes?? Most all I've ever been in have a little rotating display that has any size, shape or description of oil plug washer that you can imagine located right beside the shelves where the oil is displayed??

I misspoke,,,I found a copper crush washer at napa, still dripping, I guess there are TWO drain plugs,,,this is the one on the plastic case at the bottom left side

Now is this supposed to have the plastic washer ?
Im tempted to put that back on with a thin layer of silicone
