I pulled my bike apart and greased it well. My suspension pivots had very little grease on them. Greased all the bearings I could get to and filled the lips of the seals with grease. Air filters on Yamaha dirt bikes will sometimes have a little motor oil on them, but never air filter oil. I serviced mine prior to starting it the first time. I found that one of the wheel collars on the front was installed backwards.

It is smart to check your air filter out before riding, I failed to do so, checked it after the first ride and the bar that goes across was disconnected, the filter had so much sticky gobs of crap on it that i am pretty sure it stayed down the whole time, but I was pretty pissed off I potentially could have ruined my machine the day I bought it.

Wanted to add: When you oil the air filter. let the filter sit a while afterwards. The solvent in the oil evaporates and leaves the sticky oil to trap the dirt. Crank itup right away and the oil can get sucked into the engine. In extreme cases you may foul a plug.

You guys swear by the regina chains...

I've never tried one but I've heard enough and I'm pretty confident it will be my next chain.

After 5 hours on the bike I believe I changed the stock chain, front and rear sprocket. I bought a non-oring DID chain and so far the wear is very minimal after about 26 hours. I'm pretty happy, the chain was about 100$ but IMO seems to be pretty decent.
