How often should the screen be checked?
Where on the engine is the plug? Manual just showed a photo of the plug nut.
Manual states "O" ring needs th be repalced, anything special about the o ring or can I just get one from the local hardware store that is a close match?

for O-rings, just dab some oil all around it and re-use unless on inspection you can see a tear in it or a cut, then replace with a new o-ring. check the screen every oil change if the bike is new, and do that for the 1st year , for during the 1st and 2nd years of a new motor little metal bits can be found in the screen, older used bikes after need less checking of the screen. tighten the oil plug nut snuggly, you can fell it when its just right, over-tighten it and that causes problems, with that washer under the nut, oil is not going to drip out of there when the nut is hand tightened, so a little snug up on it with the wrench will do just fine
