couple things if anyone can help.
1st off i have looked for 3 days for the drain plug for the rearend and i found a plug that is pushed in a allen head fill plug but now i have no clue where the rear diff drain plug might be if anyone can help.

2nd be for i was looking for the rearend plugs i got on the wheeler and drove it around the yard and then i drove it up on some car ramps to look under the rearend and and i noticed gas leaking out of a tube im guessing it the tube where gas leaks out of if you leave it sitting with the gas turned on. now i knoow it will leak gass out of this tube when i roll the atv back and sat it on the rear tires and the back rack to get full view of the under carriage but this was just on some car ramps with the back tires and the ramps are just normal wal mart car ramps.when i went to go fire it back up i turned the gas off so it burns the gas out of the carb so theres none just sitting in the bowl and i tried for 40 mins to get this thing to start and it wouldnt do nothing.i could get it to hit once or twice but it never started

It is normal for gas to drip out of the over flow when it's at an angle. It's funny you post this because 2 weeks ago i just picked one of these up for free and it's nice. Anyways I did the rear end fluid and the drain plug is on the bottom of the diff. Their is a little skid plate over the rear end and it's an allen head. thats the one you want.

No it has a hole to get it out and yes it looks just like the fill plug. Mine was pretty tight so i had to tap it with a hammer a few times so the bolt didnt round off.

cool thanks...
oh you wouldnt happen to know how to adjust the shocks on these i can tell by the notches on the bottom of the shocks you should be able to lift or lower them. and this atv has the factory tires on it and they are weather cracked from hell im surprised they even hold air and i have looked all over for tires andim told they dont make that size any more the sizes are...rear...25x13.00-9 front.....22x8.00-10 and i have no idea what the numbers mean..im guessing 1st number height of tire 2nd number tallness of the rim 3rd number the width from bead to bead. hell i dont know......i found the drain in was caked with mud..thanks

i just got this from my uncle who got it from a brother in law and it sat outside in the elements for about 5yrs and it still has a tires it came with on it and they look almost new but they are weather cracked from hell so i know the bike dont have a whole lot of time on it and it smoke a lil but im hoping it just needs a carb kit i only paid 200 for it im hoping after i put a carb kit in it it will stop smoking or the rings will free up or something.iv found alot of parts on ebay for good pricing but it runs just smoke a lil and needs new tires i havent rode it on a long ride but have ran it up the street once or twice when i knew the cops wernt around.so if you have any secrets id love to know what you do.....thanks mike

They still make tires for it. Mine are all nasty and weather checked too, I found some through dennis kirk If i remember right. And all the adjustment on the shocks do is add preload to the sprinG.
