Engine oil and coolant that is? I bought a used 500 Sportsman and am planning on changing all the oil and coolant this weekend. Wondering how much I need to buy.

What year?

Engine Oil = 2 Quarts & Coolant ~2.5-3 Quarts. So, 1 gallon (=4 quarts) would do ya!

EDIT: I'd also pick up the front diff, rear diff and tranny fluids and change them out.... depending on year. (Newer models have a combination rear diff/tranny)

Ok thanks guys! I didn't get an owners manual with my bike but lots of good information on this site! I didn't realize there were so many different lubes and fluids on a Polaris.
