I'm new to AC's, I just bought a '14 XF9000, I'm going over the sled and noticed there's a nipple on the to back of the chaincase, there's nothing on it, should there be?

I looked up the parts fiche and the older machines seem to have a tube listed but the new ones don't

You can hook up a hose if it make you feel better, 1/4" ID if memory serves. There is only 15oz of fluid in the chaincase and the likelihood of it coming out the tube is slim.

Not sure why there isn't a tube anymore. They did recommend putting a loop into the breather tube when sleds did have one. The loop was supposed to help prevent oil from easily dripping out.


The nipple without a hose does leak a little when you tip them on their side for a bit. I just put a rag around the nipple to catch any loose oil. They seem to be fine when regular riding. Have not seen any issues unless tipping the sled.
