fburke, that should be in your owners manual I would think. I don't know about the 2000's personally but its pretty easy to check by looking under the sled. if your belly pan has a hole in it with an allen type plug right under where the chaincase is.. you've got one.

Some people on this site recommend Klotz Chaincase oil. I just used the Polaris Synthetic. I did look into Klotz and it seemed to be good stuff. It was easier to buy the Polaris oil since I was at the dealer anyway.

In my Skidoo owner's manual (I don't have it in front of me so I can't quote word for word) it says to take it to your dealer to have it serviced. It gives no specifics of how to do it.
There are some very recent threads of how to do this. Here's one to try:
agreed tfin, it really can be messy, smelly to, is it just me, or does chaincase oil smell like, rotten fish or something like that, really bad anyways
also, as a cheaper solution, you can just go out to canadian tire and buy some 80/90 gear oil. dunno if it'll save ya any money or not, but it's the same stuff. I generally run quaker state synthetic gear oil. less drag than the other stuff, same protection.
they may be called snowmobiles, but hiding behind that is a cheap excuse to not grass drag.
in your 2000 polaris, there's just an allen head plug under the belly pan. drain it, clean everything up, check the tension, and fill'er up again. just changed mine last weekend with a new track, it isn't too tough.

After changing the chaincase oil on my MXZ and spreading enough oil on my partners garage floor to equal the Exxon Valdez spill, (well it looked like it.)
I bought a suction gun that looks like a grease gun with a clear plastic hose on the end.
I had to adapt a smaller hose onto the supplied hose so that it would fit into the dipstick tube but it worked really well. My son and I changed his oil last night and we almost emptied the entire chaincase before we pulled the cover off. We ended up with hardly any oil on the floor.
I was really impressed with how well this unit worked.
I bought it at Canadian Tire but I'm sure auto parts stores would carry it.
And best of all, it doesn't ruin the taste of the turkey. LOL
