synthetic ACT Reverse Gearcase Fluid in a 2013 XF 800 chaincase?

I got around to changing the chaincase oil on my 2013 XF 800 and noticed that I ended up with "Synthetic ACT Reverse Gearcase Fluid" part number 4639-628. Did my parts guy make a mistake or is this the proper oil? my manual has a different part number.

that oil is for a diamond drive gearcase in the older model sleds, like 2007-2011

I can't imagine its much different oil, but I believe the part number you should have bought is the 15 oz. bottle for a chain case, AC number 6639-539

I believe that ACT bottle is only 10oz too.

It's kind of funny that this would come up. I did the same thing on my 13 F800 this year. I bought a 12 oz bottle of ACT synthetic diamond drive fluid accidentially, instead of the synthetic chain case oil. I didn't realize it until after I already had it in the chain case. It does require 15 oz. My buddy had a 3oz bottle of diamond drive oil laying around so I added that to the chain case and left it alone. I did however ask Krom if he thought that was ok to do, and he said it was fine. After the first trip this year the oil still looks nice through the sight glass. With the regular chain case oil it always looked black and dirty after the first ride. Maybe it's better, I don't know.
