Differential maintenance

Has anyone changed the differential, and rear drive gear lube, in a 2017 Prowler 500? The owner's manual says the front differential holds 8.5 oz, which I was able to replace. The rear is supposed to hold 7.8 oz, but I was only able to get about 3.5 oz, and I drained it, and tried twice. Has anyone else had this issue? I don't want to burn the rear drive up.

It's not unusual to not get the full amount in because 100% doesn't drain out the plug. However your not even close. Something is off for sure. When you drain it the fill plug is out right? Vacuum is the only plausible thing I can think of. The breather might not be venting.

Recovering 3/4's is more like what you should get. Mine refuse's to give up the last 1 1/2 oz.
