while written for the 250F's, 99% of the information in the 250F FAQ is also directly applicable to your WR400F. the link to the 250F FAQ is in my sig -- there you will find a ton of performance hints, and a whole section on maintenance issues (engine oil, swingarm linkage, steering stem, chain slider, valve clearances, etc).
regards and welcome to TT.

I run a standard style notoil or twin air filter, which I normally clean and reoil every second ride. As for oil changes, I normally stretch them out to every 3rd or 4th ride. Due to my lack of fitness, my rides are generally pretty short. I am one of the many who has been through the gearbox rebuilding process. Even though the gearbox failures arent oil related, I figure clean oil can't hurt. Clutch debris is what kills the oil, so if you are hard on the clutch, change it more often.
