Changing fluids?

I just got back from a day of trail riding and was wondering what fluids, if any, I should change? There was a few mud pits involved, one of which was pretty interesting to say the least. I spent five hours and twenty bucks at the car wash to clean the damn thing. Anybody know of any areas that I should pay special attention to. Any info or cleaning ideas whould be great.

As far as fluids go...check the whole drive train, even the CV joints. As far as mud...clean the rear cross member and between the gas tank and the skidplate as best you as can...well I guess clean it all as best you can. If you have A/C, be shure that the drain tube is not obstructed with mud/dirt. Also, make sure your vent tubes to your axles are not obstructed with mid/dirt.
