Throttle block

So on my Polaris 1999 Indy 340 Lite, I believe my throttle block is cracked. i ride a two stroke and have no clue where the throttle block is. also my sled leaks oil like none other. my buddy ran it into a tree 2 years ago and cracked the hood. could this have caused something in the engine to break and leak so much oil?

Ride fast or die trying

The throttle block is the plastic that the throttle lever is attached to. It's on the handlebars.

If you are leaking oil, you will need to start at the oil tank and work your way to the carbs and find where it's leaking. It's a simple system, a line goes from the tank to the pump and two lines go from the pump to the fittings under the carbs. A leak should be pretty evident. You may have to take the carbs off to do a complete job of looking...
