Oil pump screen-filter

Hi y'all

So I got to draining the fluids and oils yesterday on my 750 -86.
I then proceeded to remove the screen filter to clean it up but I noticed it had a hole in it. So I won't be reusing it.

My problem is that I can't seem to find the correct name for that particular kit. Also the bolt/cap has been destroyed by some of the previous owners.
I'm looking to find a complete screen filter-kit with the cap, washer, spring and filter included.

Any help?

This is what I could find on the web: 16097A FILTER-ASSY-OIL (16097-1058)

Is this something that only Kawasaki retailers might have in stock? 'Cause I kinda live far away from my nearest retailer.

yea, its a kawasaki only part.. either mail order it, or do what I did (and others)...

leave it out. it does not harm performance at all. its a pre-screen for the lubrication system. meant to stop the chunks

Mine ran for who knows how long just fine without it (was missing when I got it, I owned it for 5 yrs)

That doesn't actively filter the oil while the bike is running, it's really just an inspection filter so that any particles in the oil are trapped in it so you can remove it and inspect the oil. It more or less allows you to see any crud in your engine without having to watch the oil drain out or filter it through a cloth to really inspect the condition of the oil. In other words, it's not essential to replace it.

Speaking of inspecting the oil, though, it looks like there is some crud on the filter screen. Did that come out of the engine?

Here's one on ebay. But the part number on the box ends with 1053.


Another one, ends with 1058, and claims to fit 750, 800, and 1500:

Last time I looked there were only new caps on ebay, close to $100. You could get by using a small pipe wrench until you find one. The cap doesn't need to be super torqued tight, people overtighten them and they end up stripped. Just snug is all they need to be.
