Oil intake mesh filter question

I have a couple of questions about the seal the tech manual says to replace when cleaning the screen.

a.) can it be reused or am I going to destroy it when I remove the screen?

b.) anyone know the OEM part number?

c.) interchange parts?

Thanks guys

Just clean the mesh w/ some gasoline and dry it out good. As far as the washer, just go to Omaha Ducati or Desmoworks for a parts fiche and order the part accordingly. Your old washer should be good to re-use.

The crush washer is a one time use and should be replaced.

Having just yesterday received my service parts and having the invoice on my desk, the part no for the crush washer is; 78710091A - 'Sludge washer', FYI the crush washer for the sump plug is 22032083A - 'Oil plug drain washer'.

No doubt you could find a compatible part elsewhere but as they only cost me £0.18 and £0.05 (around $0.28 and $0.08) I don't think it's worth looking far.

Thanks Desmo. Sounds like it's definitely worth having a few on hand then. I'll have to swing by the dealer next time I head that direction. I need to go drool on their 1098 Tri Colore again anyway.

In a pinch, you can heat up a used washer with a torch, then quench it to anneal the aluminum. I've never had one leak.

I've used mine about 5 times and no leaks...I guess you would need a new one every time if you tightened the shit out of it.....

It certainly won't hurt to have a few on hand and if the one I pull out looks good then I guess I can always reuse it. But as inexpensive as the washers are, and how important the system is they go in, it seems like the safe thing to do would be to do what TFM says and replace them.

I've re-used mine for the last 3 years with no problems but I have smeared a little 3-bond on them to help.

This year I decided to 'splash out' and replace them...

That's how to anneal copper....
To anneal aluminun, rub a bit of soap on it & heat gently till the soap turns brown, then let it cool naturally
