Very much so.
It's to hold the filter in place (obviously) so the oil doesn't bypass the element.
The filtering happens on the outside of the element, so if it isn't held tight against the block, the dirty return oil can easily become the dirty supply oil.
Over-pressure bypass (for cold oil or clogged filter) happens in the centre bolt, which is why some of the holes (where the filter positioning spring is) are available for unfiltered oil, but aren't normally used.

Weird, but it works for millions of Honda bikes.

Well answered by Steve. Here is a link where you can get them both replaced for around 8 bucks.

To be fair to BB, all duties are included.
To be fair to everyone else, no duties are actually applicable!

Yeah, well, you're hardly the first guy to either lose them or found them gone.

Deal!

Sad how parts that aren't made in Canada - so no duty needed to protect Canadian jobs - suddenly double or triple in price when they have to cross a border...

I used the pictures on BB to find out that I was missing a washer to go with the spring - made one out of an extra in one of my boxes... and Canada Customs didn't even send me a bill.
My wife is the greatest - she won't let me sell my bike - I'm less grumpy when I ride...

In my experience, it's just the shipping costs that throw a curve into the pricing.

Sorry, that's the part of it I meant. The shipping often includes the duty... on parts that have no equivalents in Canada.
