Does oem air filter need screw?

I bought a 2015 FZ07 a few months ago and want to put an OEM air filter back in it since the owner before me put a k&n filter in there and i don't want to deal with oiling it etc. Since a k&n doesn't require that screw it is now missing. If I put an OEM filter in I can't see why it wouldn't be ok without that screw since the snorkel and lid would hold it down fine, right?

Yeah pretty much all aftermarket air filters don't utilize it.  It's for added security.  Just be sure the 4 screws holding the base plate is secure.  DO NOT over torque those base screws, too easy to strip plastic material.  I label each screw (1, 2, 3, 4) to each corresponding hole and align with bright paint mark colour using a paint pen.  This makes for easy visual check if they have loosened.
