The problem is whenever I fill my tank more
than 3/4 on my 99 XC500 the sloshing of
the fuel works it's way up the breather tube.
Every bump a little more fuel works it's way
up the tube til ut comes out the end.I can smell fuel for the first 1/4 tank. Dealer
doesn't know what to do,Polaris says take it to the dealer. Anyone else have this problem?
If so were you able to correct it? Thanks
I don't know about your sled but I had a similar effect with the diffs on my wheeler.They used to weep gear oil out so I bought longer hoses and ran them up much higher and then back down under the machine so if it does drip it's on the ground.I don't know if you have anywhere to stub out under your machine, just a thought.
What if you put a bulb or something in the line. Like a fuel filter or something. That way the pressure pushing the gas out would bleed off and leave the gas in the filter to drain back down. The filter would have to be straight up and down, of course. The larger diameter of the filter would let the air bubble through the gas.
