My machine has 780 km on it and 25 hours, so I thought I would do my first oil change on the front and rear differentials. Front differential is easy to access and everything is as you would think. A little bit of a metallic on the magnet, but nothing major. Rear Diff on the other hand is very easy to drain. The fill plug location is very tough to get at. The rear diff had quite a substantial amount of metallic on the magnet, and the oil was very metallic. For the front desk, I used Amsoil powertrain fluid, and for the rear diff I used 75w140 full synthetic gear oil.

I would. It’s super easy though. Oil won’t be that bad.
 
But it say 86% remaining shouldn’t it be 10-15% remaining that’s was next screen after the alert shrugs
 
I believe the oil change frequency is 200 hours, 2000 miles, or 1 year whichever comes first. The XP 1000 Rangers suggested you do it at something like the first 25 hours.........some do some don't. Funny the new XP 1000 doubled it's oil and differential frequency even though they it is the same engine, differentials, and oil they used in model year 2024. I had Polaris Victory motorcycles for years and one year it was all of a sudden ok to change the oil and filter every 5000 miles instead of 2500 miles as previously stated. Go figure someone wants a little extra revenue until the competition steps up to say otherwise.
 
Just changed my front and rear diffs at 400 miles front had alot of metallic looking in it the oil in the back wasn't that bad

I know. Only way to get it out is to change it. Oil is cheap. I will do front diff every 50 hours. Engine and rear diff every 100.
 
I did my oil change never dropped that clean of oil in my life. Not sure what you guys paid for oil but Canada it’s $25 a quart 4 quarts bugger

But it’s done. I have no concept of money so u don’t know what $25 is.
 
Does any body know how to reset the wrench and the oil life percentage on the dash cluster I don't have ride command. Thanks.
 
Here’s the wrench I use for the front and rear differentials with a long extension easy to get to. It’s a number 8

don’t use a ball end to break it loose. The plugs have a nasty habit of tightening themselves up. A ball end doesn’t take much to strip out their contact points are limited.
