    I Thought about adding one of those mine but decided it would be a risk. I did not want to take a chance it would come apart and fill the hull with gas.

    Don't think a glass filter is allowed. Has to be a metal one

    I run a FRAM plastic housing filter on my skis just to catch the really small stuff from entering the carbs.

    ALways run a filter, it doesn't take much of a particle to block a carb jet & damage a piston, use the original type to make sure you get full fuel flow, some of those cheap plastic one can starve it for fuel.

    There is a filter in the water separator. No need to run another filter.
