Default Volusia Fuel Filter?

So I went to the Suzuki dealership yesterday and asked the parts counter guy for a fuel filter for a 2002 Volusia.

He tells me that it does not have a fuel filter.

I tell him that I think it has an inline fuel line filter.

He tells me that someone must of installed it aftermarket.

I told him I bought it brand new off the floor and no aftermarket was installed.

He said well Suzuki does not show a part number for it.

Question then is does it have one and if so what is the fuel line size so I can order a aftermarket one.

Thanks

I believe when I took off my tank for custom painting, there is a fuel screen on the inside.

The screen is not a fine filter type. I installed an aftermarket in line filter on the outside (fuel hose).

I'm sure someone will chime and and verify.

I have a '04 Volusia, I guess I didn't get the fuel line filter option on mine. I know my bike was brand new because I watched it come off the prep. guys' box truck at the dealership.

Other than the screen in the tank stock bikes do not have a filter

I can only tell you the C-50 doesn't have a stock fuel filter according to the book.

What I've been doing is when I fuel up I take my left boot off and use my sock to filter the fuel. I haven't noticed any change in the bikes performance but I did cure my atheletes foot

I guess I confused it with my John Deere garden tractor. So my son was going down the highway at 75MPH in a strong wind and claims it was cutting out. I had new jets installed last summer to work with the K&N filter. They also adjusted the carb and new plugs. So I thought it might have been a fuel filter. The older I get the more confused I get.
