Sorry if this is a simple topic that has been covered before but I have only recently joined and havent had a bike for years so I'm a little rusty on the details.

Read the manual on how to check your oil, do an oil change according to the manual, also, if you need the manual, there's a link in the stickies up top to Yamaha of Australia where you can download the whole shop manual for free.

As far as the delayed response, you may want to try a quiet after market pipe eventually. The stock is really heavy anyway and completely corked. This is a must-make sure the throttle stop is taken out-you just limit your power if you don't. I did the gray wire modification and I didn't notice a significant difference even though everyone swears by it. Also, I recently replaced my chain and sprockets and the dealer accidentally gave me a smaller sprocket that was one tooth smaller. I think stock is 12 and he have me an 11 or maybe its 13 to 12. Anyway, it was the best mistake since I have great low end torque which is perfect for hill climbs. I rarely poop out during slow speeds. You will give up top end speed but who cares!
Hope that answers your questions. Have fun on that bike.

I was lucky enough to buy my bike second hand with an aftermarket pipe already installed.
It wasn't until I put the stocker back on to get a roadworthy that i realised how restrictive the stock muffler is. If you think it goes well now, wait until you get it breathing properly. It's a different bike.

You can get a Boyesen AP cover (aftermarket) that supposedly really improves it, or if you're daring, start messing around with the AP itself and adjusting the timing and duration of the squirt which is also supposed to help eliminate it.
I should be getting my White brothers e series next week (also gently used) but won't get to try it until spring.

Things to be careful of:
Your carb does not have a leak jet so don't make yourself crazy thinking about it.
The BK mod applies to your year carb. it worked very well on mine. Don't spend a lot of time trying to get your squirt below 1/2 second. 1/2 second is just fine for practical use. http://www.thumperfa.../ap_mods.htm#BK
when you have your carb running well set your TPS voltage to the high end of the service limit as described in your manual.
If you want to go crazy reading about tuning your carb and the earlier FCR carb(WR400) search threads by Taffy
Good Luck let us know how it turns out.
