Do not ride it until you fix it.....Your can order a Boot kit from your local Polaris dealer or see if you can find one on line... since its the inside one it won't be bad to change.

Well I didn't notice it till today, I rode Sunday at Pickett and it was muddy and stuff and then I sprayed it off, think I need to drain the diff? If so what all do I need to do and what type of fluid do i need to refill it and stuff.

Would it hurt to put 80-90 synthetic gear lube or something along that line in front and rear?

If there is not alot of mud in there you can probably clean it & grease it and put a new boot on it and it be ok. If you need any help let me know.

I would say break it down. Remove the Boot. Check it out. Dry it out. Grease it up..........Check all the other Boots while you are at it. You could have Boot Rot.

no you do not need to drain the diff the axle boot only contains to the axle not the diff... but if you think it was ripped while riding through mud you need to inspect inside the boot if there is mud and dirt inside that axle you need to clean it good or else all that dirt and grime will wear on those bearings in there and you will blow that axle apart... order you a new boot and some grease for inside the boot most boot kits come with grease but not enough you wana make sure that axle has plenty of lube..

if polaris is like all other atv's you should only need 30 weight oil in front and rear diffs... but honestly unless you messed up a diff seal you dont need to change the fluid..

my 2 cents i would only run what factory specs call for there is a reason why it takes the weight of oil it calls for trust me...

Thats what most all ATV's I have had used...Atleast Yamaha, Suzuki, Older Kawasaki's use. Except the newer modles like the Brute Force and cause of the front diff lock you have to use 10W-30. and as long as it doesn't have a wet brake you use the 80W-90 in the rear ...which yours does not have one.

According to the service manual I downloaded for an 03 the rear is a 80-90 and the front is a PDD "Premium Demand Drive Hub Fluid"

Translation?!

From the picture it looks like someone pinched the clamp to tight when they put it on. Make sure you dont do the same, it just needs to be snug not so the clamp cuts in. Its an easy fix, if you need help just PM me.
