I looked for a shutoff on this sled when i got it
didnt see one and there isnt .
tonight i go to start it no go flooded right out fuel coming out of exhaust
so i guess from having it in the truck shaking around float bowls emptied?
so should i just put shutoffs in lines going to carbs ?
I know some other polaris guys have shutoffs never had them on other brands i own.
Thanks for any info

You only need 1 shut off valve and it Must go between the Tank and the Fuel Pump. If you add valves between the Pump and Carbs you will damage the pump over time.

Float Bowl needle and seat leaking is a very comon problem with the TMX carbs. We shut the fuel off on all sleds when they are not being ridden.

I an a little surprised you don't have a shut-off from the factory, someone must have removed it.

In my experience I would have to say get used to it. My IQ has flooded something terrible more times than I would like to remember, even with the shutoff valve closed. I'm going to try a new valve when I can find one. When they're flooded, they're a bear to get going in my experience.

I have been clamping the fuel lines then running for awhile so it drains the carbs down no problem yet .
no flooding since .
