Stupid oil change questions
Posted December 17, 2003 - 06:06 AM
Do you take the skid plate off first and then go at it.
Do you pour all the new oil in the top where the dipstick is or in the filler hole in the side. I'll assume filler hole becaose of the name, but enlighten me please.
I was reading the manual last night and it looks a fair bit more complicated than the DRZ was. Are all those steps necessary.
Thanks a lot.

1. I always remove the drain plug on the frame first--MAKE SURE to turn the front wheel full lock in either direction otherwise oil will get on the front tire ;it shoots out pretty fast(could make a mess on garage floor).
2. Yes remove the front and bottom skid plate (stock). Then remove the big drain bolt and the small drain bolt from the bottom of the engine.
3. Don't forget to clean the strainer screen---I have found it easier to remove the whole hose that leads to the strainer screen (hose goes to kickstarter side of engine).

I think the one for 03 and newer WRs and YZs will work, but I don't know for sure....
Does anybody make a paper filter replacement for the brass mesh filters for the 98-00 yams?
