I need to do a service on my wr450f 2007 before spring :ride: but I'm not adept at it :banghead: so I took it to an dealer. The seller says it has done service, changing the oil, oil filter and battery. What should I say master, what to pay attention to? thank you :thumbsup:

No! Service manual says something ridiculous like 1000mi oil changes.

First check your valves, clean air filter when dirty, change oil every 8-20hrs of riding, depending on how hard you ride. Grease swingarm linkage, oil chain, flush fork fluid.

Sorry... I think you guys missed his point.....I feel the most frequently required service is the oil and filter along with the air filter both of these services are very simple and a good place to save $ by not having to go to the shop as often. Get the book from Yamaha. It will take you through what you need. Good luck and I hope you will enjoy wrenching on your own bike.
