G'day guys,

Just a quick question regarding one of the drain bolts on a wr450 06 model?

I am not sure what bolt the manual is reffering to as NUMBER 3? (manual page 3-16 or 226)

Is this the bolt on the frame or somewhere else?

Could someone please point out where this bolt is located?

Cheers.

be careful when removing that one, oil will squirt out and hit your front fender/wheel, I made a big mess the first time i changed mine, sounds like a pain with all the drain bolts, filter and screen but once you do a few it's not bad at all.....

Heh, I had the same problem finding that bolt during my first oil change, and didn't spot it until I got everything back together and the bike topped up.

So it wasn't until my second oil change did I find out about the oil shooting out of the down tube. :applause:
