I put over 13k miles on my 06 before I sold it and I never hand an issue...if it was me, I would make sure the bike is geared for the road and change the oil every 300 miles or so....should be fine:thumbsup:

I would suggest not taking any advice from the person that told you that.
The WR is one of the coolest running watercooled 450's on the planet, especially the oil.

I agree, the 450 5v motor is superior!

Yeah, I wonder how you ill set this up on the older steel frame bikes where the oil is in the frame? Cant you just use an expantion tank?

On the steel framed bikes, it was easy.

My bike runs cold on the street (less than 150F as long as I'm moving). Adding an oil cooler would be the last thing I would want to spend my money on.
