It's real easy. Underneath the chaincase there is a hole cut out of the bellypan. There you can acess the drain plug. I think you will need an allen wrench to get it out.Unscrew the plug and thats it. then add your new fluid where the dipstick is. :div20:

Be very carefull when removing that threaded allen plug....sometimes they are in pretty tight, and its very easy to strip the allen wrench out. Other than that these sleds take roughly 8 oz. of your favorite chaincase oil.

Whats the best way to get them out after doing this.....mine is in this state as we speak! I tried an easy out but it does not go into the plug far enough to grab decent.

I've found tipping the sled on its side and drilling the center of the pulg for the biggest easy out that can be used works all the time. You need to find a long enough easy out to reach. Seems these plugs are good for two oil changes before the wrench will strip out....I can't understand why Polaris can use a regular hex nut type drain plug.

Drill a hole in the center of the plug. Then try the easy out. That worked for me on my buddys sled last year. Like too slow said it's alot easier with the sled on it's side.
