I just picked up a 2011 yz450f and wanted to know if there is another place to drain the clutch oil or if it is the same as years past. I thought that Yamaha separated this but wasn't sure what year they started that?

Yamaha has never separated the transmission oil from the engine in any YZF.  The change was when the '14 became a wet sump engine.


The oil drains are the one in front for the oil reservoir itself, and the other below the kick starter, behind the frame rail, under the bike, for the residual oil in the sump.

Thank you very much. Wasn't sure. Wanted to service before taking it out for Thanksgiving.
