Fram filter question

I just did my first oil change on the bike and used a Fram CH6070 filter. There are 2 o-rings included. A black one and an orange one. The black one was identical to the one in the oil filter lid, so I placed it there. The orange one was noticably bigger in diameter. I could not figure why it was included. Maybe the filter works with another bike that uses that size o-ring. :?:

I seem to to remember that being the case..

Now that you're done, was the tube that goes through the oil filter there, and did you put it back in the new filter before sticking it in the bike?
Should have been a small tube with a smaller fit on one end.

The reason I ask is that they're often tossed out by people who don't know they're supposed to be there...

Just out of curiosity, what would happen if that tube were left out? Anybody ever do it?

The oil would not pass through the screen element properly. So if there was debris in your oil it would be allowed to go back into the engine.

Oil goes in one hole and out the other, rather than being filtered, if I remember correctly..

It doesn't block any oil flow, but it's not filtered, either.
