Just a couple days ago, i replaced the tank fuel filter on a ski-doo 670, and i got lucky! There is a spring surrounding the filter that is made of metal, not brass, so i just used a magnet to pull it out of the tank. On my Polaris, i used a metal coat hanger, bent it up and fished around the tank to get it out. Carefull though, sometimes the hose is not long enough to make its way out of the tank, and you may accidentally pull the other end of the hose off. Then you will need to pull the tank off.

Note: Some models use fuel filters are located inside the fuel tank. To inspect/replace filter:
Remove fuel from tank
Remove air box
Remove fuel line fitting from fuel tank
pull fuel line, pickup, and filter from tank
