Express 400

This is the first ATV I've ever had, so I hope to tap the brains of you experienced folks. I picked up an old 1997 Polaris Express 400 2x4 oil injected, but find very little information about this specific model. It appears to not be original engine (but does appear to be the right one, 400L ??) to the frame VIN, but can't be sure as labels have been intentionally scraped away. Anyway, it needs rear brakes, one front tire replaced (very worn), and the speedometer doesn't work, other than that, it runs OK.

It has an automatic PVT tranny. My main question right now is whether there is another model that I can use info on that covers this unit, (i.e. which models use the same engine, tranny, etc.) I downloaded a repair manual, so I expect to use the manual quite a bit.

I'd say the Xplorer 400 would be a match and probably just about any other 400 two stroke of that year.

Thanks for the reply. I was thinking the Xplorer, but have spent my time looking for Express specific posts so far. What about other model years? Any idea when this engine & tranny were introduced and discontinued?
