Hello everyone!

Just got my sled home from a tune up and noticed as of yesterday after work that there are 2 puddles of gas underneath my sled probably even with the handle bars. It possible that this happened before the tune up but I dont know for sure. Was wondering if anyone had ideas as to what I could check or what this might be. I could not see anything as of last night when I checked. Would appreciate any feed back anyone might have on me dilema. Thanks so much!!

Well the place where my polaris leaks is around the cap, but that is only with a full tank and riding hard. It sounds like you may just have a small crack in your tank or fuel line. What kind of sled is it?

id run my hands from the highest point down over the fuel lines and the tank.. once it starts to get wet thats the leak area check around it. unless it sprayed u should be all set.

Duct tape much like the force... it has a light side, a dark side.... and it holds the world together!

Just remember not to use a candle for light on this job! On second thought it might help you find the source of the leak quicker!!

It is possible the gas line was not shut off, causing gas to flow through the carbs. This has happened to me when trailering my sled.

I'd have to agree with exjake on this one. The leak could be coming from any where under the hood, it just depends on where the drain holes are drilled in the bulkhead as to where the gas hits the ground. You may also want to start the sled and watch your carb float bowl overflow tubes, you may have a float that is sticking or waterlogged.

Polaris is my way out - Other people just use a door.

never thought of that... i always keep the fuel lines off when not in use or trailering. good luck with your problem solving!
