Re: Oil change/Oil filter questions.
I agree that the o ring sounds like it might need to be replaced.
As for the slipping, you could try to put a piece of sandpaper in the filter to help 'grip' the filter better. I needed to do that the first time I changed oil on my bike-after that, I don't put them on so tight. Sorry you'll have to open it up again to find the leak
