Electronic hour meter (Maintenance Intervals?)
Posted July 11, 2005 - 02:41 PM
Anyway, the big question I have is how many hours should I use for my engine oil maintenace? I usually change my oil at about 500Km with synthetic but I am not sure what that works out to for hours.I generally just ride medium to hard core trails at an expert level, no racing. The meter has a reminder at 25hr increments so I figured that might be close but maybe on the long side of things. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

WR 450. I was told by my local dealer that it was 5-6 hrs between oil changes if trail ridden, less hours if workeded hard or raced. I changed mine after 8 hrs (only 2 looooooooong trail rides) and visually I would say that it was definitely due for new oil.
I'd recomend 10 hours or less for oil change.
