IS THERE A DRAIN PLUG ON 700-4 pioneer???

I'm in the bush....internet SUCKS...I cannot find anything on youtube about removing OR draining the fuel tank...I do NOT see a drain plug....The dealer did not even KNOW that the fuel filter is NOT sold separately....Blah, blah...

So, hopefully someone with good internet or knowledge can direct me to a schematic of the fuel tank removal, OR, where the drain plug is.....IF there is one....

My machine is not shifting or powering up a hilll, I've treated, ran it dry, etc....

Is it missing or just low on power? It a hit and miss but the 700 is known to eat a camshaft.

It starts great...idles great...runs up to 39 mph on flat ground, shifts, but...up a hill it lacks the upper end power as in past...coming down the hill it's shifting but at the upper end, say 35=39 mph , it does sputter....

and it was sputtering, etc but I ran it down, fill and filtered the new gas...treated...and it went better for a bit, then sputtered alot, on and off...then goes ok on flat ground...

so, looking for schematic to drop the tank and look at the fuel filter....

and the motor just does not seem to open up at the top in as in the past....so, think I have some bad gas, but, cheez, not a clogged filter....

any links to a diagram of dropping the tank is appreciated, I've not found it yet...

What year is it?
My 2014 I believe it was had a loose pc in the spark arrester that blocked the flow causing similar power loss. This was not a recall at the time I had the issue but they replaced the arrester which resolved the issue

there is a limp mode for major problems that prevents it from shifting into 3rd....
my problem...i screwed the dipstick into the hole to check oil level, as on EVERY other honda motor or kawa, polaris, etc...

sooo, i'm low on oil nad maybe in limp mode..motor runs fine...but hits limp mode at 18...

sooo, just changing/adding more oil, but, probably will have to send out machine via barge to get limp mode reset...IF I did not damage a motor..

but right in the book, it says, do NOT screw in dipstick....incredible...an industry standard as far as I know...but....live and learn....hope it's limp mode....

but I gotta say..NO DEALER had any idea about the no shift/rpm low mode....but it's in the service manual...

GET A MANUAL with every new vehicle....****, I've been in this business since I was a kid....never thunk...don't screw in the dip stick to checck......
