Today I bought a 99 Sportsman 500 HO that needs some TLC. My biggest concern is the fact that what I thought was a vent that hangs from the bottom of the carb. bowl runs a pretty steady flow of gas whether the motor is running or not. Any suggestions? Thanks, Jeff

Hey Jeff, welcome to the board!

Is the thing you thought was a vent really the bowl drain? Does it look like it's got threads on it? If so just tighten it up (this may require a pair of pliers)and the leaky-leak should go away. HTH.

Oh, and I forgot to ask - what part of Central IL?? I'm in Greenville, just north of I-70 a bit.

It's actually a hose that hangs from the bottom of the bowl. It has something in line that resembles a filter of some sort!
