I have 1997 400 . Vin #4XACC38C3VXXXXXXX. Guys @ parts counters say it's an explorer 400L. I need a rear driveshaft but when I tell them it has independent rear suspension they say no! this quad has same rear axles as 1999 sportsman 500. What gives?

400 L was chain drive and two stroke, if yours has independent and is 4 stroke it has to be a sportsman even though I don't think they made a 400 sportsman in 97, they made a magnum 425 but it was chain drive, got any pictures?

Looks like a Sportsman. The microfiche isn't much help as it shows a 400 but its not the same plastic and it's a 2-stroke with solid axle. I don't think the Explorer
had the outlet in the pod. Might be wrong about that.
