    Default Need help from the polaris guys

    Ok I am working on a friend's 1995 sportsman 400 2 cycle ATV....It leaks gas. I found that the gas is coming out of the tube on the bottom of the Mikuni float bowl. The line is not hooked to anything. I pulled the carb and everything is clean and moves free... What is wrong with this thing??

    I know this is old, and you probably already fixed it but I had a similar problem after having my wheeler sit for 2 years. Poured a bottle of seafoam in the fuel tank, got it running for a few minutes and then it cleaned right up.
    I put it in my machines now every time I put them up for the Winter and I've never had anymore carb related problems.
