2016 sportsman 850xp

I just purchased a 2016 polaris sportsman 850xp I ordered a oil change kit with ps-4 oil and I'm wondering whats recommended through polaris for front diff,transmission fluid and rear diff fluid I want to use all polaris brands just making sure I use the correct fluids for each one cause the atv didn't come with owners manual and I know the front diff takes a special fluid as for the trans and rear diff

Polaris website has owner's manuals for free download and a lubricants chart for lubricants.
Demand Drive in front, Tranny oil in the middle and Angle drive gear oil in the rear.

The ATV did come with an owners manual - you just failed to require it when you purchased it. If the PO did not have the manual, he obviously did not maintain it - it should have been cheap or you should have walked away when you found out the manual was not included. Did you get the title?

Congrats on your purchase.

Can't believe you didn't walk away from the deal because you didn't get an owners manual with it.... LOL! No way it could possibly have been properly maintained without one.

You likely got a decent deal. FYI, I don't have the owners manual that came with my '15 850, but the maintenance is done, along with preventative stuff. I do have a digital download of the manual and read it and keep a log book of maintenance items. So, who ever buys my ATV when I upgrade, will need to download the manual as well.

Judging by some of the questions on here, most that have or had an owner's manual have never look at it so you haven't really missed anything Phil... lol.
I found it interesting that the OM for my new machine used up about half the pages telling you what was NOT covered by warranty.
