Dirt in Brute Force Gas Tank


I took the gas cap off my muddy brute force 750 and a chunk of dirt fell down in the tank. It was about 1"x1" and was just hard dirt. There was about a gallon of gas in it and i siphoned it all out but no dirt came out with it. Is there a fuel filter between the tank and injectors? If not what is the best thing to do? My brother said to just run it and it will be fine but it just scares me.....

Tanks are made to come off easily, because you need them out of the way to get to other stuff. Be sure the fuel valve is off, remove the tank, and rinse it until you are satisfied that the dirt is gone.

This tank does not come off easily. It's not like a sport atv. And there is no fuel valve. It has efi.

Maybe not "easily", but it will come off, and that is what you are going to have to do....like it or not!

My Rancher has EFI and a fuel valve. My Rancher is a utility, and I can get its tank off in 3 minutes. Maybe utility quad design, has largely gotten off track......

      Does anyone know how to, or if you can, change your AMA number? The race number, not the full thing.

      I have a 1990 Suzuki RMX250 for sale.  It was bought from a friend who bent the crank back in 2000 and took it completely apart (down to the nuts, bolts, and washers).  The frame was powder coated black.  New crank case bearings, new gaskets for crank case, cylinder, and cylinder head.  All transmission bearings were cleaned and checked for wear or damage.  The crank was rebuilt and balanced by a local Harley shop.  New OEM piston and rings.  Cylinder and head are in excellent condition and worth almost as much as the entire bike, I think.  Brand new FMF Gold Fatty pipe.  New front and rear Renthal sprockets and new D.I.D. chain.  New grips.  Includes the original headlight and odometer (not shown), Mikuni TM38 carb has been cleaned and rebuilt.  Seat is original and in perfect condition. Runs perfectly.  Could use some new plastics, new foot pegs, front fork seals, rear tire, and a tune by someone better than I.  Pink slip in hand, but hasn't been registered in years.  Will throw in a Clymer manual.  The bike is a rocket and too tall for my 5'9" frame.  I'd like something a little more convenient to ride with my young kids. Asking $1800 OBO.  Serious inquiries only please.  Price doesn't include any shipping.

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      Hey everyone should I buy this bike? $350 haven’t negotiated yet, not running kd80. I want to flip it or even keep it so the condition is not a problem. Is it easy to find parts? And is that a good price before negotiation. What do you think it’s worth. If not do you guys know of anything I should buy in Victoria area that’s 2 stroke.
