I picked up a 1997 Polaris sportsman 500, that didn't run upon inspection I found the intake boot was broke, I ordered a Caltric boot. I installed the boot and the quad runs fine, the problem I have is the carburetor is 1/4" away from the bracket that mounts the Carburetor to the frame. I compared the new boot with the old boot and they appear to be the same length. and after looking at it the old boot is short to the bracket as well,

I'm not sure what else could be wrong except someone has changed the rubber insulators that hook the bracket to the frame?

Anyone have any suggestions ? or pictures of the set up on there machine?
