Newbie question ... is the WR450 drysumped like the 25o?
from the Yamaha website 250: "Dry sump lubrication system uses frame as oil tank, helping to create a more compact engine and chassis for superb handling performance."
Same for the Wr450?
Thanks!

And the 5 titanium valves, 12.5:1 compression (12.2:1 for 05) redlines at 11,000 rpm (max HP, but can spin faster)... Its race bred!
