How often should I change the engine oil?
WR 450 2008.
The manual says for competition use every 1000km
and the maintenance for the emmision control says every 2000km
Which is right?
I have motard rims 17' and 42 rear sproket.
I ride the bike about 4 times a week doing some wheelies and riding around (about 30km per day) and sometimes (weekends) i ride about 120km.
Total 2000km every 3 months.
The temperature ranges here are from 20 to 35 celsius.

I usually do mine about every 500 - 600km, with a new filter each time too.
I made a pair of magnetic drain plugs too.
There's not usually much metal stuck to them.
Not sure if that's good or bad!
(ie. Good that there's no bits of metal floating around or bad that my magnets are missing some of it!)
