WR450 Maint Scale
Posted July 19, 2007 - 06:12 PM
Am new to maint on any kind of motorcycle (oil changes and air filter certified though!), but when I bought my used 06 WR450 I decided I wasn't rich enuff and had to do most of the work over a beer....
Next on my to do list is lubing front and rear...so, question is: on a 1-10 mechanical skill what is a lube job rated--compared to an oil change which is 1 on my scale?
If it's to high, I'll probably drop coin and find me a good local mechanic...thanks for the help...Regards KS

Lubing everything takes a long time, you litterally break your bike down - relube it, then put it back together.
It is a fair bit harder than an oil change, but nothing is hard to do on these bikes.

...then as you remove parts lay them out the way they come off ( like the exploded views in your manual ). Take your time and go through one section at a time until they are all done. ...
I have a step son that does just the opposite of what you have recomended...it isn't pretty, and it drives me up the wall.
