WR450 Dry Sump?

5 posts in this topic

Newbie question ... is the WR450 drysumped like the 25o?

from the Yamaha website 250: "Dry sump lubrication system uses frame as oil tank, helping to create a more compact engine and chassis for superb handling performance."

Same for the Wr450?

Thanks!

And the 5 titanium valves, 12.5:1 compression (12.2:1 for 05) redlines at 11,000 rpm (max HP, but can spin faster)... Its race bred!
