You might want to check and clean the air filter and check the oil level in the differential.

1.7 quarts. Make sure you use an oil designed for wet clutches. Most automotive oils have friction modifiers that will make the clutch slip. The recommended oil is Honda GN4.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

The oil fill hole for the diff is on the main top of the diff. On the left side of the diff, down near the bottom, there's a check bolt. Remove the check bolt and pour gear oil through the oil fill hole until oil starts to run back out the check bolt. Reinstall the check bolt and reinstall the top oil fill plug. When you remove the check bolt if oil is already coming out, you won't need to add any gear oil. Remember to check the oil level with the ATV sitting as level as possible.

For the diff, use SAE 80 Hypoid gear oil.

For the engine, the recommended oil is Honda GN4, 10W-40. In colder temps, use 5W-30.
