front diff oil

front diff actuator is jumping in and out when I am in 4wd, gonna open it up and check it out, now if I pull it out I will probably need fresh oil right (what kind is it?) and how do I check it, been looking around for info on how too check it and cant seem to stumble across anything, any links/info appreciated

oil in front dif

there is a plug on left side of the diff if you are standing in front of the bike, for the oil that goes in the front it calls for 10w40 motor oil. i use the same brand that i run in the motor. the drain plug is on the bottom of the diff

Most of the time, when you start to have problems with the actuator like that, the oil in the front diff is milked. There is a large plug like he said^^^, and a drain at the bottom. Drain it out and if it's milked, just fill it back up and ride it around a minute, and drain. Do this a few times to clean it out. You will need to drain it to pull the actuator. It doesn't use much though, and it's regular motor oil for the front. If you do pull it, be careful putting it back in. The puck on the end has to fit in the groove in the collar or the actuator housing will break when you tighten it.

I use diesel to flush mine out with.... normally I drain it, fill with diesel and make one slow lap around the yard, drain it again, and usually ready for fresh oil after that. If you have a milked diff it CAN cause it to kick in and out of 4wd. Mine does it...in fact it did it in the middle of the highline at Mud Stock last night... went back to the truck to change my rear engine seal and went ahead and threw new oil in the front diff while we were up at the truck.... no more probs after that. Meangreen360 has told me before that his does it also...so I dont really think its an uncommon thing for a brute.

It's the seals in the diffs. It will do the same thing to your motor when those seals leak. That's why I'm very careful and change the 20 dollar seals often to save my 3,000 dollar motor....

one of your seals are leaking. I usually change mine diff fluid every 2 rides. It always needs it. just make sure you swap out that allen screw drain plugs with a hex head bolt. it will save you a BIG headache.

The rear usually stays cleaner than the front. I usually at least check it while I'm doing the other maint. Keep in mind, the front uses regular motor oil. The rear uses wet brake oil. They don't use the same thing. Drtj is right on the bolts. Take the allens out before they strip out and get some bolts in there instead. One day, you will be cussing and fighting those allens....
