4x4 Polaris Questions, and Pics Wanted

hey, im working on a little project (classified[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]) and was wondering, are the polaris gearboxes seperate form the engine, like could you buy just the gearbox? also, what years had a chaindrive front axle, i know my dad's old 87 trailboss did, but did the 400Ls? also, did the 400L have a 2 speed gearbox and is that shaft drive in the rear or chain? also, anyone know what the gear ratios are in the gearboxes, are they all the same or are some different? anyone got pics of just their front differentials, both shaft and chain? i know a lot of questions, but want to make sure i have the right information.
Thanks all

Re: 4x4 Polaris Questions, and Pics Wanted

ok i can answer some of your questions. #1 Yes the gearbox is seperate from the motor. #2 Yes you can just buy the gearbox. #3 I left the dealer in 99 so all the quads except the sportsman 500 were chain drive to the front and rear. Not sure after that. #4 The 400L are you refuring to the sport 400 or the explorer 400. The sport was high and reverse. The explorer or express (2X4) was high, low, and reverse. #5 I dont have any pics of my quads with me. On the gears sizes if i remember right. The 400 and the 300 used the same gears. Thats expolorer and express models. But like i said i have been out of the dealership for a few years and I havent really kept up with the new models.

Can someone please bring me a hammer my 33's just ate my fender again. Damn i need more lift.
