Morning All,

I have purchased a Rhino from an older man that no longer needed it. It was sitting for months not being used, and the guy drained the gas tank to try and keep it clean. I can get the Rhino to run for a couple seconds (it sounds great) but only while applying starter fluid to the top of the intake.It seems that I am getting fuel, as I can rev it up for a short time before it finally dies, but that maybe simply running on the starter fluid. I ordered a new fuel pump, but in the mean time I noticed a line not plugged in coming from the tank. I have added some pictures, and would like some help. 1) What year does this look like to you, how can I find the year? 2) The line I am holding in the picture, where should it go? 3) One of the pictures is where the other gray fuel line plugs into, and it is a 3 line junction, does that look stock? I know the Rhino has been chipped with an exhaust, 300 hours. I live in GA, so no high altitude issues. As of now it seems the fuel line runs from that junction of 3, down to the tank, and than the other line from the tank goes no where. Thanks for any help you can lend!

#1= 2007
#2- That is the fuel suction line, it should be attached to a fuel filter. From their a short hose approx 4" attaches to the bottom of the fuel pump.
#3 Looks normal

Good looking Rhino!

Your awesome. Got a new inline filter from Yamaha, works great! Saved me a bunch! Now, it does not want to idle, and back fires a lot when not giving it gas going down hill. I saw there is a hand adjustable screw on top of the carb. I adjusted it all around to see if it effect the idel, but no help. Any suggestions on the idle and back fires?

Man, this has helped me so much. Thanks again!

No problem! Sounds like you need to pull the bowl on the carb and clean the jets. If the bowl has never been off, use vice grip needle nose pliers to crack the screws loose. Otherwise you will strip the phillips head on them. Then go to your hardware store and get some stainless metric allen head screws to replace them with. You can leave the carb hooked up with the exception of the fuel line, choke cable and the 2 wires on the bottom of the carb. Remove the jets. Spray the jets and carb with carb cleaner.

I did just that! Now, it stays running fine, but still won't idle. Thoughts? Also, it is pretty difficult to turn it on the road, is the rear axel non-slip all the time? It does go in and out of 4x4, just seems slip would be nice ;).
