That's what ya need to be sure of.
Seeing as our fuel system is gravity fed, any restriction in the system could cause problems.

Cool. I had used filters like these on just about every bike I had owned before the VN , but never added them to my Vulcan because of reports of flow problems at top speeds.

Which I always thought was odd , but wrote off to the large displacement per cylnder you have with the 750. (e.g. a KZ1000 being a four jugged bike only works out to 250cc per , as the Vulcan would be 325cc per jug..thus , the demands for fuel should be higher)

I had almost bought these however:

I liked them because they you could take them apart and clean them and the filter element was replacable.

Warning, my VN700 had these plastic funnel types and they had, over a period of time, basically melted and become deformed. The plastic nipple at the base of the funnel was bent almost to a 45 degree angle. I think the previous owner installed them and never noticed that they were losing their shape. Keep them away from the cylinder heads, plastic melts when in close proximity to a heat source!

I am sorry that I do not know how long they were in there and my engine always runs hot, so you might be okay with these but I would go with the metal ones referenced by KnifeMaker for an application this close to the cylinder heads.
