Question 1996 Sportsman 4x4 2-stroke

Hello everyone,

I bought the ATV a couple of years ago now I have a couple of issues.

Problem 1. I have a fuel leak issue, so I bought a carb. kit for it. When I removed the carb. the two vent lines 1 on side and 1 on bottom float chamber are missing (hoses and all) I guess previous owner removed?
Where are they supposed to be routed?

Problem 2. Battery not being maitained by charge system. I found the voltage regulator the wires were shorted together. I bought a new regulator but I have two yellow wires versus the old had 1 yellow, and 1 yellow w/ brown stripe. All other wires matched.

Thanks for any resolution that may be offered.
