Bought everything I needed for several Burgman 400 oil changes from eBay sellers (oil from the local motorcycle shop).
Some parts houses want crazy $ for a Suzuki O ring - &/or ask $17 to mail them; I buy them by the bag on eBay with free shipping.
Yes, I try to support the local brick & m. bike shops, but they don't carry scooter parts (even though they sell new Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda and Kymco scooters).

I think I've only replaced the small O-ring once in 50k miles and nine years and never those other two gaskets. I suppose I should. But I did buy a three pack of filters.

I do change the o-rings but only because the WIX filters I usually buy come with new o-rings in the box.  When I buy other brand filters that don't come with the o-rings I reuse the old ones.  

I've never changed the plug crush washers.  Never changed the crush washers on my 650 either.

If my filters have the new O rings, I use them. I always change my crush washers, to me, it's cheap insurance.  The one time the Mrs. took her car to an oil change joint, the ham fisted monkey doing the job, over tightened the plug so much he not only cross threaded the pan, but actually deformed the crush washer so much  it was broken. It took a nasty-gram from my lawyer to get them to make good on it. Lesson learned, and I do all the oil changes on all the vehicles.
 The only problem I've found using mail order parts like the O P has been shipping costs. Free shipping, especially combined, can make it worthwhile.

Sounds like a good score, never hurts to have a couple extras around.
The 650 doesn't use the O Rings, but as far as crush washers go I keep a couple around just in case.
I replaced one on my 06 once but only cuz when I pulled the plug off it rolled under a shelf, & I do keep a couple spares.
If I didn't have the spares I'd have dug it out from under the shelf, there wasn't anything wrong with it.

I don't bother with "motorcycle" oil...no big deal  without a wet clutch.  My Burg burned oil when I used synthetic...but with cheap Kendall 10W-40, it doesn't.

Not "bothering" with motorcycle oil.....just using the oil as stated in my Suzuki factory service manual.
This scoot needs few oil changes since we are not racking up the miles like a car - so I use the Suzuki oil and all the 0 rings and washers. Then I go riding.
