fluids

  1. 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. 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. 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? Also I changed my oil and trans fluid and the trans fluid I put in looked a lot thicker then what I drained. I went by the part number in the manual for the fluid, off page 129. I...

  6. Polaris Sportsman
    All, Just finished changing fluids on my 04 500 HO and wanted to grease the ball joints and shaft yoke. Noticed the ball joints has a fitting that looks like it needs a special end on the grease gun. Can anybody tell me what size the fitting would be and how many pounds of pressure (on the gun)...
  7. 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...
