So I think it might be fuel filter or fuel pump.. 1981 trekker starting running for 2 seconds and then dying. Worked great up until today. Is the fuel filter located up front in the engine? Is the fuel pump to fix, do i need to drop the whole tank? Anyone have a picture of what their air filter looks like?I am trying to figure out if the one I have is kandn or not… Mahalo
might be electrical as well .. or should I say spark . igniter is a fairly common piece to fail .
but yes I would for sure start with the fuel filter . easy and cheep . if your fuel system has rusted , you may have a small piece clogging the needle valve in the carb . I would actually cut the old fuel filter apart and see whats in there , and go from there

Get someone to drizzle some gas down the carb while you turn it over. If it continues to run while your adding fuel that way, then you most likely have a fuel delivery problem. Filter is where I would look first, like Slacker said, cheap to buy and replace.
You can also look for cracks in any of the rubber lines from the tank up to the carb. They won't necessarily be leaking fuel, but they will be introducing air into the system and can cause a lack of "prime". Simply replace with new rubber line.
