Your bike has a Dry Sump oiling system. The oil is used in the engine, but it isn't kept there:
Just changing the oil on my 01 WR426. I only drained about a cup full from the engine and the rest from the frame. Is this normal?
Yours is also a dry sump, same as the '06 and earlier. The difference is that the "tank", or feed oil reservoir, is integrated into the engine cases. It's a separate volume, nonetheless.
Unsure if theres a hard & fast rule ? but dont you drain from the frame first then the sump ? I have an 07 so no oil in the frame
I drain the feed reservoir first, then the filter, then the sump.
