    Hello, I'm very new to the pwc world and am findin a couple bumps..

    I have a 2000 Polaris virage 701, and I have an unattached clear 2.5" hose, it was on the right side of the motor. Any idea what it is? Where it belongs?

    Thanks a bunch

    Welcome to GH!

    2.5 feet or inches?? This is most likely the battery vent for lead-acid type batteries that goes from the battery to a rubber external vent (not needed for AGM batteries). Another long clear tube/hose is the speedo tube from beneath the driveshaft area... goes to the dash display.

    Okay it's 2.5', miss clicked the battery has one but it's not connected and I have on that runs from the Dash to the back end and is plugged into the "hump" right over the prop

    I have what I'd say looks like a grease insert in the back above the "hump".

    These two are vents? Correct? The one running vertical with the ski isn't connected to anything. The horizontal is connected to a gas line

    One is a vent for the gas tank the other is a battery vent. If you use a sealed AGM battery you don't need the vent hose. If you use astandard lead battery then it needs to be connected to the nipple on the battery.

    So the battery hose should run from the back to the front? Right now the battery has a hose not connected on the other side the 4inches long
