I'm doing an oil change on my 2009 Kawasaki Ninja (250cc). In the new oil filter package there are two gaskets: one large one (goes on the bottom of oil filter tray), and one small one.

I'm not quite sure where the small one goes... any ideas? I didn't see a small one on the old filter. Should I just leave it off?

The small O-Ring goes where the oil filter bolt meets the oil-filter tray.
