Here is a link to the owners manuals for Yamaha's. It doesn't have the 2008 listed but it should give a starting point from the 2007. I don't believe they changed much. http://www.yamaha-mo...uals/index.aspx
btw, how's the collarbone doing?

The dip stick location depends on the year model. All Steel Framed models ('03-'05 YZ450 and '03-'06 WR450's have the dip stick located on the left side of the frame just below the steering head. '06-'09 YZ450's and '07 -'11 WR450's have the dip stick in front of the cylinder to the left. And yes, they are all dry sump lube systems that share the same oil between engine and trans.
My brother called me today and wanted to know how to check the engine oil. I've never owned a Yamaha or been around a WR. I think my freinds YZF dipstick is located on the front of the engine but not for sure. He said he has been all over the engine and can only find what looks to be a plastic oil fill cap, but no dipstick. Also does the WR share engine and tranny oil like the YZF? Thanks for any help/advice.
Here's some info that may be useful:
You should be able to find the '08 manual here:

Greg the collarbone is fine. It healed right away, but was in 4 pieces and really crooked. I had it broke loose and plated with 9 screws.
