Does The Vulcan Have External Fuel Filters

I know the pet cock has a filter, but mine has 2 inline filters as well. Is this normal and necessary? Broke one and having a problem finding a replacement.

They don't come with filters there. Likely the previous owner put them on. Some have had problems with inline filters not flowing fuel well, so I'd remove them
If you believe your tank is clean. You might need to buy new fuel lines...(5/16" ID)

If you really want them I think you can find a replacement at the auto parts store. Or at home depot by the lawn mower section. Then again there is always ebay...
