It has been 500 miles since I have changed the oil in my wr400f. Do you think I should change it? I checked the color of the oil and compared it to the color of the brand new oil and it's just a tad darker. :thumbsup:

YES... Change the filter too. I change mine about every 200 miles.

The oil may appear cleaner off the dipstick, but its probably black at the bottom of the motor. Specially after 500 miles.
Out with the old, in with the new....filter too.....

Agreed.

You're going to be shocked at how dirty the oil is when you change it. It comes out black after 2 hours of use.
