  1. Rear Diff/ Trans Oil

    ATV Oil, Lubrication & Filter
    Just purchased an 18 base 570 and would like to change all the fluids. Is the Trans fluid separate from the Rear diff. fluid? Apologies if this is probably a silly question but I am new to this. Thanks
  2. 2012 Polaris Sportsman 850 EPS

    ATV Oil, Lubrication & Filter
    Good Morning, I purchased a used 2012 Polaris Sportsman 850 EPS roughly 5 months ago that had 600 miles on the machine. There was only one oil change done on the ATV since the original owner had it and I can tell it is starting to run a little rough as I have put on another 200 miles on it...
  3. Do I really need to remove my winch?

    ATV General Discussion
    It looks like I need to remove my winch on my 2014 sportsman 400 to change the front diff fluid. Is that the case?

  7. Oil change please the final word in Polaris fluids.

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    I had to read almost two months in forums to decide which fluids to use in my recent bought pre-owned 2003 Sporstman 500 (that looks and feels like new) if I can’t have the original fluids from Polaris or the amsoil (believe in my country we have only autozone with car oils available) products...
