just noticed my 08 WR450 has go 750km's on her.
i have done 9 oil change's on her so far. 2 with normal 10W40 oil
the other 7 with 5w50 racing formula mobile 1.
i have cleaned and reoiled the air filter 2 times already.. been very clean everytime i have checked.
should i be doing the valve's the motor doesn't seem any more noisey they normal ?
anything else i should be looking at. i mean i always make sure the coolant is up and stuff like that ?

As far as things to do: torque all nuts and bolts to spec.,grease the steering and rear linkage! It might not be a bad idea to check the valve clearance just for peace of mind to know that they are in spec.

its just ultra clean always, even after saying that i have washed it twice and reoiled.
i also purchased a second one, to make the switch faster.....
but i guess i should bite the bullet and try check the valve's..
thanks for the advise

But I think your changing your oil way too much. Save some $.
Even with severe single track riding 100% of the time that would be alot of changes. I change every 300-500km depending on how extreme the riding conditions have been.
I usually have a couple air filter changes between oil but that depends on the dust. Not hard to believe you're not seeing any dust yet at this time of year up here in Canada.
