2001 WR 426 -- OEM Yamaha metal mesh oil filter?
Posted September 11, 2009 - 06:32 PM
I've seen the metal screen oil filters for sale...... also, a friend of mine has a new '07 WR450. The oil filters for his bike are paper filters....
Went to the Dealership last week and bought a Yamaha OEM oil filter for the 426..... it is very obviously a metal screen filter. (only paid normal price $11)
Is this OEM Yamaha filter cleanable & re-usable?
BTW --- The service manual states the down-tube oil strainer to be torqued at 66 ftlbs.... said to myself --- no way in He$$, must be a mis-print. It also says for the smaller drain bolt
on the down-tube to be 17 ftlbs, and the larger transmission drain bolt to be 15 ftlbs....which makes no sense what-so-ever....
Man --- I'm not trusting the service manual right now....
