Oil filter no spring

Recommended Posts

Bought a 2005 450x and just did the oil change before the season. I removed the filter cover than the filter and? No spring on the bottom???

First time for me on that bike. Correct me if I am wrong but I think the spring should be behind the filter... :-(

Can the motor have been damaged running with the filter loose???

Yes, there should be a spring, and potentially.   If the filter came loose, you were running un-filtered of course. 

 

 I would not worry about it too much though.
