There is no filter.
Here are a couple of things to try if you haven't already.

Check your tip over sensor. its mounted under your tank by the shock. Everything will look normal but no fuel pump or spark. It should have reset on its own though.

Put your ear on the tank and turn on the key. If the pump is working you should here it for a couple of seconds before it turns off.

I struggled with a crashed 03 for days before I figured out it was my key switch causing my problems.

Of course there is a filter on the pump!!!When the pump is running you cant see anything moving even if you hold the pump on your hands, even then, you cant see also the filter, you have to take the pump apart to see the filter.When you turn the key to ON the pump works for 4 seconds to set the pressure at about 3 bars on the line, so if you cant hear it running the pump is not running.check first the cables are they connected???check your fuses, check your tilt switch. if you want to test the pump, connect it directly to a 12v battery take out the fuel line and check if it pumps gas.if it doesnt then buy another pump.

My bike fell over before and when the pump would start off you could hear it make a non-normal whine sound then at 10k the bike would cut out. You can get like mentioned above to the filter screen if you take the pump apart. Im gonna say that you should just invest in a new used pump from ebay as mine was toast just from a little tip over.

There is not a per say inline fuel filter. Kawasaki uses a filter sock on the end of the pump. This is in the bottom of the sump. Like as said you will have to take the sump off of the pump to get to the fuel filter sock.

When you are turning the key on are you hearing the pump prime?
