Hello everybody,
I was making an oil change to my 750S and wanted to clean the oil screener/strainer. I ran into a problem where the strainer part got stuck inside the engine and only the bolt came out. Is there any hints how to get it out?

Ups. It happens sometimes and it happened to a few guys on the forum. I guess the only way to get it out is with a lot of patience and long needle nose pliers.

Or maybe a pair of artery forceps

those are good but not very strong. Since the plastic part he has to fish out has almost the same diameter as the hole it needs to be pulled through it will slip from that grabbing tool every time.
Another thing to try with long needle nose pliers is stick them into the tube carefully and open the pliers while pulling out. Getting it this way might make it easier pulling it out than grabbing its edge. If the pliers are too big one could also unbend a coat hanger, shape a U, bend the tips outwards and use it the same way.

Yes, but they might be good for grabbing the strainer and pulling it to the vicinity of the hole where he could then grab it with a pair of needle nose pliers and pull it out.
One way or the other I'm sure we would get it out G :D
