The barb for the vent hose on my carb, right next to the choke, is broken. Is there anywhere I can get a new one?

It wouldn't surprise me at all if it isn't supposed to be removed, but I'd rather not replace the carb. In case I'm using the wrong terminology:

I would seal it off and just run and 'up' vent.]
PUT FILTERS ON THE VENTS

I hadn't thought about sealing it off, I guess that makes sense.
Why do the vents need filters? It's a supermoto so it's not getting too dirty.

Everytime you start or stall the motor, you suck the surrounding air into the carb.

Hmm, I didn't realize that. I would have expected them to have a filter from the factory in that case.
I think the track I want to go to requires a catch can for carb overflow, which should do the trick.
