NEED: Oil Filter Screen

When I did my oil change yesterday, there was nothing on the end of the drain plug--just the plug, no screen.

If anyone's got a spare, please PM me. Otherwise, I'll just keep an eye on ye olde eBay.

Thanks!

Did you drain from the bottom of engine case or the one on the shifter side of the engine? Bottom bolt doesn't have one, shifter side does.

I only understand what I don't understand.

Thanks guys. Shifter side. I also don't have the spring or anything that's in the OEM diagram--literally just the plug/bolt.

I found it both on BikeBandit.com a little bit ago. It'll have to wait until next paycheck. Besides, I won't install it until next oil change anyway. Bike's been running fine without it, although obviously it is there for a reason so I do want to get it rectified.

Thanks!

I assume you stuck your pinky in the opening and felt around to be sure it wasn't just stuck in there. take a closer look with a flashlight if you can get down that low.

The screen does not come out easily when the drain plug is removed.

Um...no.

Being new to the bike and new to changing the oil I just assumed it would be connected to the plug and come out as one unit.

You might be right.

(Sorry, guys, for possibly starting a needless thread. Rookie mistake.)

That would be too easy, LOL!

No worries! Just think, if you do find it, you won't have to spend the money for a new one!

I only understand what I don't understand.

No need to be sorry because I am sure there are more experienced members here that did the same thing when they first started. You may have started a thread that will help another newbie in the future. Everybody can learn from a mistake, either your own or from someone else. Some one will be saying thanks to you silently at some point. lol

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"

going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

Hey Anth...no worries.

the oil is fresh, so just drain it and take a look. then you can always put the oil back in.

FYI: when you see oil screens with holes in them....it's usually a pinky hole from someone trying to remove it.

Be gentle with it.
