      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Yes they did make one. It was a 400cc 2-stroke not the 425cc 4-stroke which I think started production in 2001.

As far as your tranny fluid question I'd look in your manual. If you dont have one you can get one for cheap on the internet. Or you could just call a dealer they should beable to look it up. Just dont let them talk you into buying 5 gallons of the stuff.

Hey I just saw your from Shafer, I am to.

Here's the steps for a '98 400L Xplorer (the list doesn't go back to '97) No Sportsman 400 on the list for that year. Tranny calls for 12 fluid oz.

Transmission Oil Changing Procedure

1. Remove skid plate.

2. Remove fill plug/dipstick.

3. Remove transmission drain plug located on the bottom right hand side and drain the oil. Catch and discard used oil

properly.

4. Clean and reinstall the drain plug.

5. Add Polaris Premium Synthetic Gearcase Lubricant

(PN2871478 - 12 oz. bottle) to full mark on the fill plug/dipstick.

6. Check for leaks.

7. Reinstall skid plate removed in step 1.

Thanks Dave! It is a 97 sportsman 400 (4250 miles on her too) 2 stroke and that was the info I was looking for. I have the manual but no where in there could I find the amount of fluid needed. Looks like I now have a weekend project! Thanks Again Mudcat

I am going to guess and say its approx. 32 oz." using Polaris AGL Gearcase Lubricant.

If anything fill to bottom of fill hole and you will probably be ok.
