Default 2013 XC Oil Kit

So, dumb question of the day. I got a 2013 Cross Country. The Victory Oil Kit comes with a small washer for the drain plug, and a larger one plus o-ring for the stem where the oil filter goes. My bike never had a washer or o-ring on it when I started changing it. I'ver never put it on. Some 4 changes since.

I just changed the filter, and put the washer, then o-ring on. This time. Was this just a dealer oversight, or are these for another bike?

There's 2 things one needs to do when installing the oil filter; 1. Prime the filter and 2. Smear a thin veneer of oil on the built in gasket. I have no idea what that larger one and the o-ring might be for. I'm too frugal to buy the Vic oil kit, I use another oil (un-named to avoid another damn oil thread) and a WIX oil filter I get at an auto parts store.

I posed the same question at my first oil change. I was instructed to use only the appropriate size washer, such as what came off with the plug. The "O" ring and other washer are for other bikes, of which I have no clue.

Good deal guys. Thanks for the quick replies. I was doing all the other fun stuff, like dislocating my arms and fingers to do tire pressure, etc.

Always smeared oil around the filter for everything. Never primed it by putting oil in, though.

there is NO o-ring in kit for oil filter.
dip stick yes.
No need to prim oil filter. Just start bike and let it idle till light and pressure comes up

Buy a pair of 90 degree tire air valves and have them installed when you do a tire change. Point 'em to the right side.

I dab my finger in (the unspecified) oil that's going into the bike.

good point to clarify . . . the washer is for the drain plug - only.

Other than the gasket that is fixed to the new filter . . . No washer or "O" ring for the filter.
