Fuel system / Fuel filter

Sorry for a dumb question but have to ask it. After checking the basic drawings and parts list for the strada / motard I don't see any mention of a fuel filter ?
So am I right in saying there is no filter in the system ?

The reason I ask is that in Vietnam fuel is not of the greatest quality ( 95 is best you can get , period, and no faith sometimes this is what you're actually getting ) unfortunately , and it was just a thought that for longer trips I should be carrying certain spares , one of which was going to be a fuel filter. Check the parts list and none showing.

Also on the subject of fuel and lack of availability of better quality fuels, I am thinking of using an additive from time to time just to prevent any future long term issues. A good idea or for marginal gain ?

The joys of Asia I guess
Any input appreciated. Thanks

Educated guess is that it's in the fuel tank with the pump

Don't know about he filter but, I use SeaFoam as an additive/cleaner with every oil change. Pretty devoted following on the web for cars and bikes.
