Hello,

I bought a 02 ZL600 ESR last year. I have a newbie question about maintenance. How and how often should I change the drop case oil (I believe this is used for reverse on the sled?). Same question for chain case. What oil is recommended for each? Is anything else recommended (I've already greased the suspension and changed the plugs)?

Thanks for the help.

Clean your power valves!! I try to clean mine at least twice a year. Make sure you keep an eye on them to keep them performing properly. Its easy, but make sure you keep up on it.

Thanks! Are dropcase/chaincase the same thing? I notice on my sled I have a dipstick on the right side that says dropcase.

Any links on cleaning APV?

Thanks again - much appreciated.

go on ebay and get yourself a CD manual for your sled

they are $5-10

here is a good article on cleaning the valves on off road.com

remember our 600s have the 3piece valve vs the 2 piece 500/800/900s
