Unless I have totally missed it my '07 Kawi manual does not mention the oil screen in the section regarding oil changes, so apparently the manual was changed for later years. I found out about the screen from being on Kawi forums. In any event I have had mine out only twice - once after the first two oil changes and once after I replaced my stator. Both times the screen was clean, and I haven't bothered otherwise since as durox mentions it has to be bent slightly to remove and insert it and I feel that I am much more likely to damage it by repeated bending than cleaning a clean screen would accomplish.
