    on my 94 trail the fuel line comes out right by the handle bar shaft.since mine was so tight I had to pull the tank back to get to it.Just remember the fuel line inside has to be the right length and has a weight on the end

    ^^ what he said.

    If the fuel level is below the outlet port on the tank, try to hook the fuel line from inside the tank with a bent piece of wire, remove the outlet port, reattach the fuel line and reinstall the port.

    Figured it out, pull airbox and remove fitting from tank. Glad I looked at it closely before I pulled the tank!

    good work, but pulling a tank will only take 10 min. not a big deal

    Had the same problem with my Polaris 2up. I pulled the tank off and drained the fuel. My fuel line was in pieces in the tank so had to do some flushing before I put it back on. The next problem I ran into was that the new line and filter wouldnt sink so I attached a weight with a zip tie to the end. Kind of a joke for a setup.
