I just bought a used 04 sportsman 500HO and noticed that there is a small hose that is not connected on one end. It is connected on one end directly underneath the carburetor, and the other end is just laying on the motor. It is a clear hose that is about 10 inches long and a little smaller than a pencil, It has a small inline filter. Can someone tell me where it attaches? It runs good and I can't find where it might go. Thanks

Hey Diverman did you ever figure out where that hose went? I think it's just an overflow hose that doesn't attach to anything.

Pretty sure it's the carb bowl drain line. When you open the carb drain, fuel should drip from the hose.

If it's the carb drain line, the filter you describe is actually a check valve.
