Fuel screen on XR400 petcock

Anyone ever replace one of these? The Honda parts diagram shows that it can be replaced, but I can't figure out how to remove it. I had fuel flow problems and traced it back to a clogged screen. I've been pretty successful at cleaning the screen, but there are still some small bits on the inside. I'd rather just replace it to make sure nothing is clogging the petcock.

Better yet just install an inline fuel filter on the fuel line.
These work better than the petcock screens and then you have 2 lines of defense.

Maybe, but that doesn't help the clogged screen problem
