Hello I have a 2004 Rhino 660 that I am attempting to change the diff gear oil in and Ive read several posts from several forums and only one mentions that there is a viewing window to fill to in the rear end but for the life of me I cannot find it.

Diff Fluid Change? - Yamaha Grizzly ATV Forum

It states not to fill to the fill hole as it can blow the seals. Can anyone point me to where to find this viewing window?

Thanks ~ Phil

The 700 do not have a window. I fill mine even to the hole.

slowly rotate the ring gear once you think its full,I've had bubbles form in there and once u rotate the ring gear they pop and you can top it off to the bottom of the threads....careful gear oil stinks.............

I like this suggestion ! I will use it the next time I change gear oil.

I always fill mine and then let it sit for a bit. I usually have to top it off 2 times before its actually full..it always keeps settling down.
