A 94 Virago has both...the fuel petcock on the tank has strainer that sits inside the tank, you remove the petcock and the strainer is attached.
There is also an replaceable inline filter on the suction side of the fuel pump.
I had similar problem. I wound up taking the carb to a bike shop and letting them clean it. They had an ultrasound bath that they put it in. It's submerged in a solvent, then they shoot sound waves at it to loosen up stuff that a regular cleaning can't get to. After I did that, it ran like a top....For 3 1/2 years...Then I had to do it again.
You do have fuel in the tank? Pull fuel line from carburetor--turn fuel tap ON--fuel should run from line (into clean can or bottle). If none, the brass screen inside the tap body may be plugged. Remove screen and hold with pliers. Clean with carburetor cleaner from auto parts store. When you set choke, can you see anything happening? May have water in bottom of float bowl. Remove bowl to check (and clean).
Sure mirrors, nuts, bolts and screws. Maybe a fender and a bit of other stuff. But for the most part not much will match up and now you have this ugly monster in your garage and your next job is to figure out exactly how you are going to get rid of the da-- thing. Look a bit harder and get a match for your bike. Now you have something worthwhile.
