Vapor Lock

During a ride fri afternoon. We stopped for a drink. Went to start the rhino and it wouldnt start. After changing f/filter,cdi I poured gas in the intake it fired. Son in laws rhino also had fuel coming out his vent hose and vapor locked. Anyone had these issues and come up with a remedy? Have also heard the fuel pumps maybe a problem??? Thanks in advance!

yes, the pump could be the problem
another thing to look at is, in the rear of the engine cover, passenger side is a Y fitting and it must be facing up, if it's down, it will cause a venturi effect and suck gas from the carb.
also, the float may be stuck or clogged with dirt or may need adjusting.,get connected
