If you have an older Sportsman(with the integrated rearend & wanna use Polaris AGL fluid or a quality "chaincase" fluid...Amsoil etc..)

If you've got the newer style (w/the separate rear & gear box) I believe you use any synthetic 80-90 gear oil in the rear & the AGL in the tranny

.....not sure what year they went to the separate boxes...I've got a 2000 with the integrated rear
