The actual oil filter is located on the side of the engine case (brake side). The "filter" in the tank frame is a screen that needs to be cleaned periodically but doesn't need t be changed unless it gets damaged.
I change the oil every 150 to 250 miles, and normally clean the stock oil filter at that point. I've only done this a few times so far. When I need to replace the filter, I plan to purchase a replacemet from Scott that is way better than the stock unit but costs $60 instead of $11 for the stocker.

As far as the Scotts thing (not to start great Scotts debate again) Im not a fan of them. I had one before on another machine and whenever I cleaned it it was always clean .
