Float bowl drain ????

I have a 05 500, when I bought the quad it never had a drain tube on the carb drain valve. I decided to put a new drain tube on with a Polaris check valve but I dont know where the best place (Stock route) is to route the tube.
I installed it and thought it would be better to run the tube on the clutch side between the backside clutch cover and the block, near the oil filter and down to the frame.
Is this an OK place to route the tube and where is the stock location route?

On my '03, it's on the clutch cover side, in the back and back down to the earth.

Why not?
I do a lot of deep water riding and I want to keep the water out.
