I'm looking at buying a wr 400 and was wondering what the maintenance schedule was like.A lot of my mates are suggesting i'll spend most of my time in the shed with a spanner in my hand. I have owned only xr's up to this point which involve chain lube, petrol and regular oil changes and not much else. I would appreciate "words of experience" from anyone out there.Assuming i'm going to drop it occasionally, how does the damage report compare the xrs? Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

its not a CRF...

maintenance is low-medium-high depending in what you use it for and how you thrash it.
I'm a weekend warrior and it takes little of my time to maintain. Oil change is about the most onerous job you will have to do on a regular basis (apart from air filter). Oil change takes about 10 minutes. Do that often and WW's should be riding most of the time and wrenching just a little !!

FYI - I have 1998 and piston rings are still in factory spec !. The engines are really solid.
