what will be the signs if the oil will get in the oil filter but wouldn't come out ?
i just change the oil on my 929 and i hope i didn't let any plastic cover on the oil filter ( i know it is stupid ).............

Start the bike, if it builds oil pressure, you'll be fine.

If you dont want to do that, drain your oil into a clean container, remove the filter, inspect, reinstall and pour oil back in.

Yes, the filter has a bypass valve.
At high RPM most of your oil is bypassing the filter.

There is no need to drain the oil from the bike to remove the oil filter.

The oil that is in the filter will spill from the filter when removed but the oil in the oil pan will stay put. Unless your bike is upside down.:thumb:

Why would there be plastic in the filter? OEM filters should have a thin plastic wrapper around the whole thing that you have to remove to install it.....but nothing inside the filter.
