I'm pretty sure I left the spring seat out when I did the oil change...

I'm picking up one from the dealer tomorrow. I've put about 500 miles on the bike since I did the oil change with Mobil 1. Should I pull the filter and inspect the filter for damage/change it or should I change the oil again?

I'm assuming the oil has been filtered because the spring as long as it hasn't pressed through the filter is ok? The spring holds the filter against the engine block so the oil gets filtered right?

It's fine the way it is.
So put your new washer in on your next oil change.

So the oil light on for one second after start-up is normal and unrelated? It never comes on after.

You could even leave the filter out (Not recommended) and it would do the same.
