Angle drive fluid, or i have used and still use Mopar equivalent ATF in tranny only, as long as safe for CVT trans. In the front hillard (gearcase)you need demand drive fluid , front hubs as stated above if fitted need angle drive fluid, NO GREASE in hubs!!!!
People will tell you it’s fine to run certain things but in the front it’s a magnetic gearbox and you certainly don’t want that metal shavings floating around your gears. Keep grease zerks full, top off fluids and hammer down !!!

I use ATF type F, Dexron or Honda Two Stroke Transmission Oil - you can also use any JASO rated motorcycle engine oil. The transmission is not hard to lubricate, but it will shift better depending on the oil used. That's why I like ATF type F

Maybe… the front diff with Hilliard requires a less viscous oil than other transmission lubricants. I would just stick with the Polaris on demand fluid. It’s a little more expensive but could be worth it.

Any ATF will work in the front diff and Type C might be advantageous because it was formulated for transmissions that required slip - Type F is for transmissions the do not require slip
