Cool New to Polaris

Hey everyone. I'm new to both this forum and to owning Polaris bikes. Just picked up a used 1998 XPLORER 400 4x4 that is IMO great condition for its age. Everything works and I can pull start it in 3 pulls or less in 20 something degree weather that we are experiencing at the moment. It was covered in dust from sitting in a barn for the last 3 years, but cosmetically it was fine. Engine, trans and belts seems fine as well. It has 2100 miles on it. I'm still getting used to not having to change gears and the fact of it being a two stroke, but its been a great experience so far for the little riding that I have done. I'm going to keep it park till now it warms up enough that I can tear it down some and verify all the parts are working.

I found this site/forum and got on here at first looking for a manual. No one seems to have a manual posted for a '98. Anyone have an owners manual? Any help in tracking one down would be great. I have acquired a parts manual and a service manual.
