hi, we are changing fluids in the 500 ho and just want to make sure that the drain plug that in on the bottom of the engine underneath the recoil is for the 13.5 oz of gear oil and that the fill plug on top of the recoil is for that, also where is the transmission drain plug? thanks

Front axle takes GL 80-90, transmission plug is under the rear transaxle, it's takes special lubricant, Polaris number 2873602, engine oil drain is on the oil cooler tank and under the engine, both locations, the recoil housing has nothing to do with engine or transmission oil, you fill the transmission in the dipstick hole on the trans,.. engine oil is filled in the oil cooler tank dipstick hole,... do not put oil in the recoil housing, that is where the magneto is.
