Probaly a stupid question. I was washing quad yesterday and noticed a tube hanging in the center just past the front of the rear fenders. Is that a fuel drain or did I knock something loose with the pressure washer? It hangs past the bottom of bike.

Yeah its carb drain hose so if the carb bowl fills up it can drain out that hose.

I spent about 3 hours in a rice field the other day, no chance of sucking water up in there is it?

Check valve works well, when attached. If you lose that one-way valve and water is above line than yes water can/will definetely get sucked up into carb.

I thought i had a snorkel problem but i found out my carb valve was missing. It mad a diffrence by putting it on. If you want to test it out you take off your valve and put a skrew in the tube in place of it. If you go threw water and it dosent cutthen thats your problem. Thats what I did. and that was the problem.

but you cant do weelies with the skrew in it because it would flood it out.
