Diff Oil change?

Recommended Posts

I figured while Im doing everything else might as well change the diff oil on my 05 QuadKing 700. I looked in the manual thanks to AJMBOY. Im wondering what  you are using? I would like to use Amsoil since all the other fluids are that. If not just something good. I pulled the plug on the rear and its a little dirty but not bad. I just want to start from scratch so I know what I have.

Will Royal Purple Max Gear 75/90 work? It says it will in both front and rear?

My 2008 calls for gear lube in the front and GL-4/Wet brake fluid in the rear.  Being new to the forum and Suzuki ATVs, I don't know if your 2005 uses enclosed rear brakes as my 2008 does.

I have used Mobil 1 75W-140 synthetic for years in my trucks.  I chnaged the front diff lube in my 2008 to that.  For the rear, I went online and checked major auto parts stores until I found GL-4 and "wet clutch" specified.

Although my trucks have been here a year, the ATV will experience its first interior Alaska winter with the new lubes (and 0W-40 Mobil ! in the engine).  -30 degrees F and below will be the ultimate test.

      Hi bought this quad with a few leaks and other issues which thanks to excellent advice from these forums I thought I’d sorted them till I washed it down and found oil underneath. 
      It is coming from the seal around the gear changer pedal as it looks like someone has banged the housing flat on one side. Knowing how easily aluminium is broken I don’t wanna risk tapping it back into shape. Would a new seal fit or would the distortion of the housing render it useless.
      thanks in advance

      Can anyone point me to a good set of instructions for changing front diff oil on a 1987 Suzuki LT4WD? I can almost guess which bolts are drain & fill... but I've been wrong before... 😆 
      I found some partial posts on other forums and they linked out to dead images and whatnot. Any help appreciated. 
      This thing is running pretty good, got the front brakes back to life, electric start works fine, seat cover fixed up, plastics stitched back together...
