WR450 Oil Filter
Posted January 28, 2003 - 05:42 AM
Also my dealer does not have fiche yet on this bike and I would like to find the part number to see if it is the same as YZ450f. The manuel does not list any part numbers

The part number is 5TA-13440 00-00. It takes the same filter as the YZ 450.

Apparently there is a string on Thumpertalk that
indicates some of the new WR450 owners don't think our
oil filter fits the new bikes. That's not true.
Our filter is the same filter for the YZ/WR 250F
400F,426F, 450F. Part #2153 fits them all. The 2003
bikes have a new part number because they went from
brass to a paper filter in 2003, but the filter is the
same size. It should be noted that the OEM filter has
2 grommets, we are not sure why. The filter only
needs one grommet, that is why we do it that way on
our filter, simple is better we think.
All YZ/WR owners should be cautious when changing
stock filters, as one of the stock grommets can
occassionally get stuck in the motor and the
owner is not normally aware of it.
Whenever installing any new filters of any brand,
always be sure the grommet is lubed with a little oil
to insure a smooth installation fit. Always
check, like with any engine component, to be sure no
foreign material has found it's way inside the filter
Anyone not sure about any of this information, is
welcomed to call Scotts Performance for more technical
