Walrus800 is right. I asked the local dealer about it, and that's exactly what he said....it's a fuel overflow tube from the carb. Other than being attached to the carb, it goes left and it just dangles down past the cylinder and near the bottom of the quad. The end that looks like it's been pushed around a fitting is actually shaped that way because apparently there is a check valve of some kind in there.
Over50, I know the tube your are referring to. That tube is not the same one as this one. This tube we're talking about doesn't even show up on the picture of the exploded view of the carb. This one comes out of the bottom of the carb, and heads straight left of the motor and down into the open spaces.
Anyway, glad it's not something I need to worry about anymore.
Bosnjo, you can tell your friend not to worry about this anymore. No wonder we couldn't find a connecting fitting. There isn't one.
