Recently put a new clutch in my 1984 XR500R and noticed that there was no oil screen to clean out. People here on TT mention cleaning this part anytime the cover is off so I looked for it but did not see any screen or filter. Never had any problems with this bike and everything inside the cover looked super clean and tight. Is this something to be concerned about?

I',m pretty sure that there is supposed to be one. It is at the very bottom just in front of the clutch and aft of the oil pump. It should be held in with a 6mm bolt. You really can't see much of it when installed.

Not too much to worry about though.
