It takes 8-9 oz. Front and rear. If you fill it level with the fill hole it will be too full and start puking fluid out of the seals. I usually put 8 in mine

Also do not overtighten that fill plug. They break extremely easy and then will leak around the oring. Just get it tight but it doesnt have ro be torqued down too tight

fill them both up till it starts to come out the hole .The front diff use's regular engine oil and the rear is a hydrolic oil designed for wet brake systems , like Mobil 424 .

I got it to about between 3/4 and 1 inch below threads in the rear I used weed wacker string that I bent. The front I let run out of the hole till it stopped, the rear took a little more then 8 OZ and the front took about 8.5 OZ.

Also there was some fine metal shavings stuck to both drain bolts. Is that normal?

I have a 2008 artic cat 650 side by side 650 prowler and changed the oil in the front and rear diffrentials. I filled them to the top of fill hole and now the left side front diffrentrial is leaking. You said they will puke if over filled. Do I have to replace the seal or if I drain some oil out will it quit leaking.

Measure in regular diff grease exactly what the manuals says or you WILL have leaks.

it depends on what your seal looks like really, probably best to go ahead and replace both seals and get the level right on the diff fluid
