Just read in the manual that they recommend oilchange after every race and oilfilter after 100 kilometers
HOW OFTEN DO YOU GUYS CHANGE OIL?

I change my oil every three rides or 3 races which ever comes first (I practice just as hard as I race...Hmmmm, mabe I sould ride faster like Mr. Bill, nah....I'd have to change my Oil after every ride/race that would mean $16.00 a week in oil alone.)
I have camera scoped my WR's compustion chamber and lower case several times and have found absolutely NO lacquer or carbon build up at any time. As a matter of fact, as my WR/YZ get older I have begun changing the filter (Actually, cleaning with Brake cleaner and re-using)every other oil change. I have not seen a piece of metal in the filter or on my (Advertisement) TY-DAVIS (ZIP-TY) magnetic oil drain plug in quite some time.
OK...Wild Bill....Let ER Rip.....

Every 3 rides/races.
I also put in the magnetic Zip-Ty plug and this might sound strange but I was a little dissapointed after my first change with the plug. No metal on it.
Well, mabye thats a good thing eh?

Oil = every ride/race (Spectro 4).
Oil Filter = every 3 oil changes or so, clean every time(Yamaha part).
Air Filter clean = every ride/race (Twin Air).
Valve check = twice in two years.
If I ever blow it up, it's not because of lack of maintenance. It may have some scratches and blemishes on the outside, but she's very sound mechanically.
