Where does this tube go???

Hi everyone. Discovered today after doing some repair work on my 04 Outlander 400 that there is a black tube about 1/4 inch thick on the left side of the quad that seems to come out from under the carburetor and front end of the airbox and goes forward somewhere. The length is about a foot or so long. It is obvious that it connects to a metal or plastic pipe based on the enlarged shape of the end of the tube. This enlarged section is about an inch or so long. I've looked everywhere to find where it connects, but haven't found it. Anyone with a carbbed Outlander 400 know where it connects to, and where it's located? My shop manual does not show this tube in any of its pictures, at least that I can pick out anyway.

Yes, we were doing maintenance on my friend's 2005 400 Max HO and found out the same tube, with the shape you've explained. We've spent more then an hour looking for the place to connect it and then gave up. Just couldn't find it. If you get the answer it might help my friend too.

An un-edumacated guess would say, up to the airbox?

Could just be a drain, but you say it looks like it was pushed onto a fitting at one time, one-way valve at the end??

Just tossin a few curve-balls out there.

Maybe it is a drain but removed at some point and put back on the other way.

There's an idea.
What year is your 400, close to an 04?

I removed the airbox for a better view, and the tube appears to come out of the bottom of the carburetor. My Outlander 400 Max XT is an '04. At first I thought maybe it's a breather tube like on some batteries, but then, I've never seen a carb with a breather tube on it. Going to the dealership today to pick up some stuff. I've taken some pictures of it and I'll ask him.

that tube if we are talking about the same tube should come out of the carb on the top left side and wrap over top above carb intake and air box connection and down right side of carb and through wire loop off of bottom of carb bowel and down and then loop back to frame where there is a hole in frame above driveshaft front grease nipple about 6 or so inches up if your looking down, It is a breather tube and was 2 parts with a metal insert at end I think to keep dirt and bugs out, if you check quad parts for 04/ 400 and carb parts you will see the tube.

Probably a vent/overflow tube for the carb bowl.

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.
