Yeah I know guys this subject as already been talk about. But I was thinking putting ATF in my chain case but I think it could cause some issue and I wanna know what ya think! At cold temperature and at the beginning of a ride it will be probably the best oil of all cause plenty of oil will lube all components to the fact ATF is very liquid at cold temp. But as the sled warm up and for long ride, when the chain case will be at the normal temperature, I think the oil will be too liquid to ensure good lubrication. Gear lube is supposed to be thick at hot temp to ensure good lubrication! What ya think, does it make sense or I worried too much?

I got tranny fluid in my old indy 500, and I got Polaris Synthetic Chain Case Lube in my indy trail. I really dont thing the tranny fluid hurts anything, all it is lubricating is the chain. One thing I really like about the tranny fluid is when you check the chaincase oil, its really easy to see on the dipstick, unlike the polaris lube.
