This will be my 1st oil change for my 02' 426. If you could link me up to some info that would be nice.

Try this

http://www.thumperfa.../oil_change.htm

Use a good SG oil if you can find one. The JASO grade MA is the equivalent of API SG. Grades SJ and later are not as good.

Avoid "Friction Modified" or "Energy Saving" oils.

Your bike takes roughly 1.4-1.6 liters on a oil and filter change. Start it with 1.2 and add to the full mark.

Here is the entire shop manual for the 426. I suggest downloading it and printing it out so you will familiar with it.

Hey Grayracer513, do you have a link like the one above (thumperfaq) for an '02 YZ426? I was doing a search on oil related threads and saw this one. Thanks, Mark

I wish there was a site like ThumperFAQ built just for the Big Blue Bikes, but I don't know of one. Most of the procedures for the 250Fs cross directly over to the 400/426/450 quite nicely, though, and for the most part, only the particular specs are different. Grab a copy of Satch's Manual!
