Recommendation for fuel filter

After a couple possible instances of dirt plugging my float I thought it might be a good idea to get an inline filter. I still have the original air box so space is limited. Can anyone recommend a good, small, and see-though filter to use?

a brigs & Straton lawn mower filter is about the best you can do

You can get small clear filters for dirt bikes, and I have one on my Rebel and XT225, but they have a lot more room than the Vulcan. Also the fact that the Vulcan has 2 fuel lines further complicates things. You might be able to get longer fuel lines that would allow you to locate the filters (you would need 2) in a more suitable place.

I had these on my Vulcan for a while. Tight fit, but they did fit.

Many auto parts stores carry them.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

there is a fine mesh screen on the petcock in the tank. you might want to check it's condition. i tried the inlines for a while, but they were difficult to access to check or change so i'm running without them now.

I posted these awhile back... Took me awhile to find....

You want the 5/16 size. These have cleanable and replaceable filters. They are not small,
But not too hard to get to fit. And they won't melt like plastic ones...

Bike Bandit was advertising the visu-filters with different sizes/shapes and nipple angles for attaching the fuel lines:
