oil filter spring do i need it ?

Recommended Posts

Yes i bought an 06 450R and rode it a couple of times. And today i went to change the oil and when I got to the filter I was aware that a spring is sup-post to be there but it wasn't there nor was it in the old oil . Am was wondering if I need to have it to ride the bike and if so did i hurt it buy running the bike with out one, It is a K&N oil filter so not sure since its not OEM that if it doesn't need one trying to go riding tomorrow so if someone might have the time to answer me Thanks

it is there for a reason.. find somehting to put back there to push the filter against the cover. maybe a foam earplug.
