Removing mesh filter with oil in?

Ok I need to replace the little washer for the little bolt underneath the mesh filter. I thought at first I need to drain out all my oil. However when I had my bike on the sidestand I noticed in the oil sightglass that the oil barely shows. This got me thinking that maybe I can remove the little mesh filter bolt without draining oil. I'm figuring the oil will be on the left side of the bike enough so that I won't have it all drain out the mesh filter plug or the mesh filter. Thoughts?

Which bolt are you referring to? The little "screw" under the meshfilter, sort of "under" the engine? Those are a b*tch to get tight and dry. I ended up using both a crushwasher and loctite.

The meshfilter is pretty tight, so make sure you use a perfectly fitting tool if your removing it.
