    kawasaki brute force 750 problems

    so my buddies grandpa gave him his 2004 kawasaki brute force 750 and its having some problems starting. its been sitting in storage for 3 years so we pulled it out drained the gas out of the tank and bowls of the carb but we couldnt find the fuel filter. we sprayed some started fluid in the intake and it started right up and ran great. Does anyone know where the fuel filter is in this beast and what else i should do to get it running?

    It's up in the tank and is part of the "pet****" valve. There may also be a screen in the carb just before the needle valve. Don't run it too long on starting fluid as it cleans the oil off the cylinder walls.

    No, I mean the filter is part of the gas on/off valve up inside the tank. It won't let me type pet**** valve.
    Just pull the hose off the carb and see if you have gas running out the hose. If so, then it's the needle screen or a stuck float.

    I'm assuming you pulled the hose off the carb and no fuel came out.

    You don't always have to pull the tank to pull the fuel valve. There may be screws from the bottom holding it in. This is very generic and my differ on that model but I've worked on a lot of bikes/quads and that's what I've found mostly.

    What year is it? I'll look it up.

    I'd run some cleaner in the gas for a couple tanks. Good job!

    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience more often than not comes from bad judgement.
