My chain case in my 2002 polaris edge x 600 is loosing chain case oil, i cheaked it one morning at camp, rode 100 miles that day came back and it wasnt touching the dipstick, filled it the next morning and rode two days before i had to put anything in it but it didnt take much just a little low, it is not leaking around the cover on the case is it possible that it is leaking out around the jackshaft? or what do you all think

If it's not the cover gasket then it has to be leaking at the driveshaft seal.

I was losing chaincase oil out of a big hole that a stud fell out of. http://www.slednutz.com/showthread.php?t=4308

Reach your hand into your tunnel and feel where the driveshaft goes into the back of the chaincase. There's a recess or indention there that will have oil on it if it is leaking. If you can't tell, clean that area out with a rag, top off your oil, and ride it some more. It should be evident after you've cleaned it off and then ridden it again whether it's leaking by the bearing.
