Good advice there. OP you should strongly consider this if it is a used machine.

Al53. Great advice. Lol I like the grape shine myself..... As for the fluids I have a question.. What oils do yall use and is the tranny a different reservoir than the engine oil? My Kawasaki is one in the same. Thanks in advance.....Bike has 92 hrs and 541 miles on it. 06 model

I am clueless to how its setup. Gotta do some reading lol. I have been in the oil section checking it out good info their. Now I need to find out how mine is set up..... As for the shine... I have had Apple ,Grape,Banana, Fruit Punch,Blackberry,Strawberry,Cinnamon, Peppermint,and of Course the Clear stuff lol,and a few more flavors....Grape by far the best. Let me know how your" portable gas station" turns out.
I am new new new to a Polaris so all advice is very appreciated!!!:veryhappy:
