Question about Polaris ATV
There is most likely corrosion on the aluminum or steel connector pipe for the hose, you must drain the coolant and remove the pull start housing to gain access to the clamps for the hose, unscrew and remove the hose and clean the pipe or pipes connections with a wire brush and sand paper strip to remove any corrosion on the aluminum or steel tubing, also make sure the inside of the rubber tubing is clean I would just replace the hose while I was in there. Replace hose, tighten clamps, and add coolant to proper level. Start and check for leaks.

That is the overflow line on the coolant tank. Perhaps your overflow tank was filled with coolant above the full line.
Some times the radiator may release some of the coolant into the
overflow tank when the engine gets hot. But, if the over flow tank is
to full it will be released out of the tank through the overflow hose. Also remember that liquids expand when hot, so if you have it filled too full, then you should expect some to release when the engine warms up until the right amount is int there.
Another reason may be because the engine over heats and the coolant gets deposited into the overflow tank in large quantity thus expelling it through the overflow hose. Most likely I would think that you overfilled it and the engine is not overheating but then again I don't know what you have been doing with this vehicle and whether it is operating perfectly. Let me know what how this turns out.
