I filled my fuel tank up last night, then it would not start. I thought it was flooded cuz i could smell gas. So I let it sit overnight. I went and tried to start it today, and it was empty!!!! So I poured a little gas in to see where it was leakin out. It is that tube that comes from the carburator and points down towards the ground. No fuel is getting to the engine!! No wonder it wouldn't start!! What is that tube and how do I fix my prob???

thats your carburators overflow, to fix the problem u need to take off the carburator and pull iot apart your carbs floats are probably gummed up and sticking open so all the gas is just leaking right out

im looking to buy a yamaha kodiak my friend has a 89 or early 90s kodiak which he beats on and yet its still stronger and faster than my 06 honda rancher 350 so in almost any condition a kodiak is worth it, they also can tow a ton.

I am having the same problem. But I just had it in for service and repair. Wouldn't they have fixed this?

I have a K&N air filter and a jet kit on my 2001 Kodiak but I heard I need an exhaust to get more actual power. Any advise or type of exhaust needed for my ATV?
