That's no fuel filter, that's my wife! ;)

Pretty sure that isn't a fuel/water seperator either! I've never seen one in real life, but I think you are looking at a classic "Thermo Bob" modification to moderate temperature characteristics. Someone here will tell you everything you need to to do to feed it. Search "Thermo Bob".

Let it stay it just pasess coolant to carb and lets You see its color, it looks like Yor coolant is yellow in color, then again it could be water mixed with rust, change the coolant every two years or so.

That is a Coolant Filter & it can be disassembled & cleaned, but not usually necessary.

There are fuel filters Inside the fuel tank, use a flash light to look. But yes you can install an external fuel filter, being certain to use either sintered metal or screen type. Paper filter media may not flow well with gasahol fuels at lower tank levels.

EM sells a fuel filter that turns at a right angle under the tank. This is the best configuration IMO. I put them on both of my bikes.

Wouldn’t hurt to change the coolent anyway. It breaks down over time and ideally should be replaced every couple years.

I got some stock Kawasaki coolent because of the aluminum block, and also a moto shop once told me it’s also easier on the water pump seals.
