oil change?

12 posts in this topic

I just changed my oil on my wr400f!!! I cleaned the oil strainer and oil filter. It was not easy at all! It took me about 2 hours to change it! You have to take off so many parts to change the oil! It's crazy! :thumbsup: It's worth it though! I've heard of people that never changed their oil until the dirtbike didn't run well! If you have a dirtbike you have to maintain it bottom line!

2 hours??? What are you doing that takes 2 hours??? Changing the oil in all of my bikes takes less than 2 hours.....the 400 oil change should only be 15-20 minutes, tops, and that includes the 3 minute or so warmup time.

I never touch my exhaust when removing the oil filter?

I do remove the skid plate but you can still get to the oil plug without removing it. I remove mine to get all the dirt that gets in there and never seems to wash out.

Still takes less than one hr but that's because I'm old and slow!

I had a 99 YZ400 for a while. Took 2 hours the first time I changed the oil including strainer. Took 1 hour the next time, then 30 minutes after that. Had to use the right tools, and learn a few tricks to get the time down.
