bayou fuel problem

Just got a bayou 185, around a 1984. runs fine putting around, but getting on it, it runs out of fuel. Now this a first for me having a tank underneath a fourwheeler, I'm used to a tank on top. I dont want to tear fenders off to check everything, just wandered if it is a common problem like a filter or fuel line or whatever. Thanks, be nice I'm a honda guy, don't know kawi's that well. sorry

Starving for fuel. Either plugged filter, pinched line, vacuum leak, plugged main jet.....gotta go thru it and find the issue. Dunno if anyone can point you in the direction you seek on a whim. The above is where ya start. If all of that is good...check compression....
