Just purchased an 07 WR450f yesterday. Been lightly used by the past 2 previous owners. I took the filter out today and discovered the filter cage has the hole in the center.
Looks like some dirt has gotten past the hole.
So, how f'd am I? Obviously, I'm going to get the new filter cage from the dealer before I ride it. Should I start taking steps to see what type of shape the engine is? Compression test, oil analysis, idk what else? Can I expect the dealer to be helpful - I have a print out of the service bulletin, and the part number to order..
EDIT: fixed double post and added images back
