They're referring to the frame strainer. It's a good idea to check it once in a while. It's usually in there very tight though. I lay my bike on its side so I can break the torque; otherwise, the bike would fall off the jack first.

If you don't feel like fighting with it, just change the oil. Unless there is something VERY wrong, it won't be clogged.
