Alexander,

It does have a fuel filter but is built-into the fuel pump.
It cannot be cleaned or checked.
If damaged or clogged, it needs to be replaced as a set.

Refer to service manual fuel system (DFI) 3-90.

I guess Versys was applied the mesh filter (low pressure) only. Why?

If you mean high pressure fuel filter (disposable) like in BMW bikes, I don't know why.
The start with the V is a smaller CC bike. IMHO, Kawasaki engineers gave us a fun cheap powerful bike.

Cheers.

My 2004 Toyota is the same as the V, with just a plastic screen bag on the pump in the fuel tank... Still fine at 120000 miles. Today's gasoline is pretty clean and sulphur free.

And where it so? In Russia not so...(I live in Russia) and Kawasaki has in Russia the dealers! I think that this not so clever technical decision. And the price here there is nothing.

I agree with Alexander. I fitted a cheap paper-element in-line filter to my previous bike after i bought some dirty petrol and clogged up my carburettors.

Curious, has anyone had to replace the fuel pump yet?
