I just recently purchased a 98 Polaris XC 700. I did not however get an owners manual with it, and this is my first sled, so its all new to me. I'm wondering where I can get some info about maintance on it, how I should care for it after a days run, how to do scheduled and prventitive mantance on it, and how I change stuff, such as belts, and makeing the handlebars level when the ski's are straight ahead. Any info contributed is greatly appreciated, Thank you

easy cheesy.. but be carefull the first few times on it.. 700 has some nutz, dont find yourself in a tree like i did[:D]... anyway... maintance is pretty much the same on all sleds so you should be able to go to any local dealer and ask for a polaris manual.. they might even have one for your sled. or you can look on ebay too for a manual.
if you dont find one for your sled just grease it 2-3 times a year keep in mind theres a lot of grease zerks that are out of sight so feel around for them on your sled.. they are sneaky fellas sometimes. keep it full of coolant and oil tighten suspension bolts that are loose, check your track tension, belt wear.. etc you should be good. there will be a lot of post on summer storage when it comes around to that time so just keep your eyes peeled.
