i have a 92 polaris 650 fuel like is broken. on the carb closest to the clutch the fuel line on the bottom of the bowl craked and broke so it was leaking gas everywhere. where does that fuel line go to.

It doesnt go anywhere. That line that comes out of the bowl is just to collect sediments. Clip the line and put a screw in it to plug it up.

It comes with a plastic plug, if yours broke off, it's likely in the engine bay somewhere.

re

It's nice to have a good length of say 6" or more of hose on the bottom of your carb, with the special plug it came with. Not only is it a sediment trap but it's more importantly a water trap. Water sinks so it winds up in the hose with sediments- much better than sitting in your carb causing corrosion and freezing up. The plug it there so you can remove it and drain the line every year. If your hoses are of that age it would probably be a good idea to put new hoses on the entire system along with a new fuel filter. It's all 1/4" line, just change it out one line at a time, easy to do.

What he^ said. i did it with my xlt sp 580 and it really isnt hard, but removing the air box might give easier access too!

This would be difficult to do, but on a friend of mines sled (1993 xlt mod sled), he put a 4 point connecter on the bottom lines from all 3 carbs. And on the end was a petcock attached to a drain going out the bottom of the sled. After every ride he would shut off the petcock near the tank, then reach under and drain the lines from the bottoms of the carbs with the secondary petcock. Therefore he never had gas in his carbs causing corrosion and any sediments never got the chance to accumulate. I have been wanting to set something like that up on my sleds ever since

If u have tail lights but nothing on the pod I would check the connection under the pod for corrosion or loose or broken connection or wires. Then follow the harness all the way back to the engine and check that connection for the same thing. Also check your ground wire and the connection of the voltage regulator. It is located above your right foot hold. And of course check for blown out bulbs which could indicate a bad voltage regulator. Wireing probs are sometimes a bear to Chase down. Sometimes the old jiggle test finds the prob. Grab on section of wire at a time with it running and shake it pull it push it till something changes. Good luck!

It's likely the lighting coil in the stator or a voltage regulator blew all the bulbs. I would suspect the lighting coil.
