according to the manual, the small oil screen located below the rear cyclinder should be cleaned after every oil change.

is it really necessary?
how many people actual do this?

I'm not sure what manual you're reading, but nothing about any small screen in the H-D Service Manual.

I beleive he is talking about the lifter filter screen. He has a "96 EVO motor.
I check mine ever 10k miles but that is me. I do know if it clogs you know it because your lifters stop getting oil and start to make all kinds of racket.
With modern oil filters, I have never found any thing in the screen. With the old shovel oiling system and "fiber filters", it was a good idea to do it every oil change. Just MHO
