Stalling Issue/No fuel

06 Brute 650 SRA, Completely stock.

The other day i went for a quick ride from home and it died on me half a km from home. Pushed it back, and discovered the carb wasn't getting any fuel. I let it sit overnight and when i tried the fuel line again it was spitting fuel just fine, so i pulled the tank, cleaned it(lots of crap in there) and put it back together. Had it for a good ride this weekend(50kms+) without a hitch. Just now i went to run to the store, didn't really let it warm up(same as last time it acted up) and it stalled/no start again.

Is the fuel pump toast? Or is it getting airlocked somehow by not letting it warm up? I tried turning the pump switch to prime, and removing the fuel cap to no avail.

Your 650 has a vacuum pulse operated 3-way fitting fuel pump.

Have you checked the vacuum line/fitting to the rear cyl head?

Have you inspected the fuel pump body (plastic) for any crack/leak?

Does the engine even pop when you spray starting fluind directly into the intake?

All lines are clear and free, i pulled the pump apart and the diaphram and everything looks good as well.

Are you sure its a fuel issue ? diphram pumps usually dont mess up....they just quit If so you may have the same issue 650Brute had with his it was a bad gasket on the pump assy. I think

Thats true, The gasket was faulty. Have you noticed any leaking fuel? Mine would never shut down on me, just ran like poop. If thats wher your problem lies, easy fix, and usually several of them on ebay for sale.

Give everything a look over again, and tell me what ya come up with, I can prolly help ya out.
