First off...new to the forum and glad to be here. Looks like a nice place to hang and exchange ideas and get information.
Just purchased a 2005 Prairie 700 with about 500 miles/60 hours on it. Had a new set of mud-lites put on it today and tomorrow will be hooking up my winch and doing base-line maintenence so that I know exactly where things stand.
Plan is to change oil, change front/rear diff fluids, change spark plugs, new air filter and fuel filter. Any other basic things I should take care of?
Also looking for thoughts/opinions on the use of synthetic 10W40 for the engine and/or front diff.
Thanks,
Craig

I use the royal purple because its easy to come by at the local auto parts store. Make sure you use kawie wet brake oil in the rear diff.

Where in md are you?

If you are going to up grade the air filter go with the twin air pro cage. You will need to rejet if you do this though. The stock is restrictive with the screen in. If you are just trail riding keep it stock and simple. Plenty of good hrs left on that machine. You might want to check the valves some time.

I wouldn't put synthetic in the front end. It could make the clutches in the locker slip. Use conventional atv oil.

You can use the royal purple 10-40 in the front diff. and I strongly suggest it! That is some good oil. It is safe for your diff though.

The front diff that is.. Just wanted to be clear... the rear you have to use a certain oil. I use the Kawie oil for the rear.
