I have to admit, for peace of mind, I'd get a few washers and replace it. Treat the oil as an expensive flush and move on.

Even though you've already got them, i will second gn2's advice. I got them from my local honda dealer for less than $1 each. I bought several for future use.

Mel if you have a Cycle or Honda auto dealer nearby, visit their parts dept. Ask them for a 12mm drain bolt sealing washer (oem aluminum).

Same. picked up a couple at a time. if the washer looks decent i'll use it again. I think in a pinch I've reused about 5 times.

Mine is currently on 7 plus one 4k stint without any washer. Zero leaks.

I don't have any plans to ever change the washer.

My Suzuki uses crush washers and when I changed the oil and filter yesterday I determined that it's probably a good time to replace it. The manual recommended to replace one with each oil change but I know I've reused that one at least twice already. Checked the parts drawer and voila I had one. But first, the old one had to be tossed. . ..

That being said sometimes they can be difficult to remove. So what I do is take something with a thin edge like a box cutter knife to pry the washer from the seating surface of the drain plug and move it up to the first thread. Once it's on the thread then I take a good pair of pliers and grab hold of the crush washer while I turn the drain plug using the socket wrench. Comes right off like a nut off a screw.

Proceeded to install the drain plug and fill the oil.

I put in the usual amount (bike on center stand) and then started the bike for a few minutes to let it go through the engine and new filter. After shutting it off I then noticed that the level had dropped a bit in the sight glass. So I added enough oil to bring it up to the top level and was good for go. Difference in capacity went from 3.5 qts. to 3.7 qts. after running the engine a few minutes.

I use the same procedure when I change the oil on the PCX (less the filter, screen clean instead). Drain, fill, check level, run, check level again, compensate accordingly. . .then ride. 8)
