I pulled the fuel strainer from the tank of a 2006 TRX 350 and it was falling apart. I don't mind paying for a new Honda part (actully that's a lie, I do mind) but wondered if there was a better aftermarket product that would hold up better? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome to the forums. I doubt they make any aftermarket screens for the tank or I've never seen them, anyway.

Thanks for the reply. My 2006 TRX350FE won't start after sitting for some time. I am checking the easiest things first (fuel strainer, fuel line), but expect I have clogged jets in the carb. I spray carb cleaner and it will start and run for a few seconds and then die. Any thoughts?

Yeah, if it's been sitting for a while, the carb is likely stopped up. I would remove it and give it a good cleaning. The fact that it starts for a few seconds when you spray carb cleaner in it tells me the carb is stopped up. That is, as long as it's getting fuel from the tank into the carb.

Any thoughts on my not replacing the tank fuel screen/strainer ($20 Honda part) and putting an inline fuel filter in the fuel hose from the tank to the carb? Would I be accomplishing the same result or am I missing something?

The only problem is that your fuel cut off valve might eventually get clogged up. Other than that, I can't foresee any other problems.

Good point. I just hate paying over $20 for what seems like a weak piece of junk product. Maybe I just had a bad strainer because there doesn't seem to be a better aftermarket product or other owners who have experienced the same problem. ??

I've seen that happen on older, late '80s models, but nothing as new as the 2006.
