The chain case fluid isnít expensive. Got the seal.

Pretty sure i need to drill holes in the skid plate I put on for drainage...

Also how the hell do you get to the bottom screws, Jesus it looks tight.

You have to get to them from underneath the belly pan. The chaincase sits below the belly pan which has molded plastic pan to cover it. There are two holes, one at the front and one at the back for accessing the screws and on in the center for drainage. If you put on a heavy duty rear skid plate like I did then you would need to drill holes in it to match in order to be able to access the screws.

As far as changing the fluid annually, you don't have to do it more than once a season unless you have an extenuating circumstance. It should be done at the end of the riding season before it goes into storage for the summer, that way you can inspect gears, chain, adjuster and all that and have fresh fluid that you know doesn't have any moisture in it.

Holes are drilled and case was loosened and the oil drained over night. My rip cord broke yesterday so weíre replacing that too . Had to use the emergency kit. And just like you guys said, hood and exhaust had to come off. They had to come off for the rip cord replacement anyway. Might do plugs too since itís all open. Pics to follow. Snow has been amazing!
