Not enough to worry about! I only do the 2 bolts too but I change oil filter every time. I change my oil every 500kms. Mine always looks good, it has lost that metallic shimmer it had when new.
Got lazy tonight- just did 2 bolts again, at 182 miles, oil looked great. Anyone know how much I am missing not draining other ones?

Here ya go CRF mooks.
I just did a quick search on Transmission Problems in JUST the CRF 450x/r forum.
The first page has 13 threads about real transmission problems, gears out, seals leaking etc.
It's all a myth, just like the mythical valve problems

I have no regrets selling the XR and buying the WR

Yep. The XR is the still the same bike that debuted in 2000. Both good bikes but the WR has seen numerous updates and has been well developed over the years. Rumors abound about an upcoming (XR-like) CRF600X...but a next generaion perimeter frame WR450 should be equally appealing. We'll see.
the xr needs to be updated. i was in the same boat, xr650 or wr450. decided to go with new tech. plus all my buddies ride 650s, gotta be different!! both excellent bikes.
