06 YZ450F Oil change

I have been lurking for a long time getting some good gouge, but I have not seen this issue yet. I need to change the oil and the manual does not state to put any oil in oil tank when filling bike back up. Are you guys just filling up crankcase or putting oil in both the oil tank and crankcase?

just follow manual one place to fill oil.

Drain from two and fill in one.....

I doesn´t have the 450 06 yet.. But its 1 liter that you have to fill up when you change the oilfilter to right?..

1.2lt

No, it's 1 litre.

1.2lt

Sorry, but with filter replacement it is 1 liter like anders said.

Without filter replacement it's 0,95 liters.

Total amount may be 1,2 liters, but you never get out all of it unless you tear down the engine and put new oil in from scratch.

There is 1.2 L in total in the engine.

I drained oil from both pugs+changed oil filter, put new filter in and put 1.0 L oil as stated in the manual. I checked the amount of old oil that came out and it was exactly 1.0. The japanese guys have it figured out very well. All you need is just one bottle of oil and that is it.

I thought it was 1.5 liters, what my dealership said. So do I put 1.5 liters in the engine, or 1.2?

Wait, after reading post above me..So 1 liter of oil will do perfect for one change?

Thats cool, now I have 6 oil changes ready to go then :thumbsup:

Look, if you won't start reading your manual, I'm going to come and whip your bare arse. :thumbsup:

Page 3-16.

No more repeated same questions, please. If you don't believe what you are told, ask and trust your dealer who seems to know better. :thumbsup:

Manual, the manual, man. read. Not later tonigh, but NOW. :confused:

Reading... :thumbsup:

Heh, sorry bro. Just got home and hitting up the forum really quick. I guess I must read before opening my mouth :thumbsup:

No need to be sorry, but the manual is really good and you get the best basic info from there.

Yeah, I got alot better understanding now that I read it over.

So no whipping needed :thumbsup:

Ward (sureblue), you were kinda hard on the beaver(thor) tonight! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Maybe yes, and I don't like it either, but it helped, he finally grabbed the manual :bonk::thumbsup:

... and he's already referring to the manual in his posts :thumbsup:

I know:rolleyes: ,

I see him posting in the general forum now asking about greasing the bike (the way you should when you get a new bike). He gets the right answer from us in the YZ450F forum then asks the same question elsewhere to validate it.

He has the audacity to question this fountain head of knowledge???? :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Just kidding THOR. sounds like you are really proud of that awesome new bike and are being extra careful with it. Just remember..to USE IT.

Sounds like your dad needs to take a moment out and join you in your time on the site. Not all of us are full of it........well...not all the time, anyways.

Anybody know how much oil to add after oil change with filter on an 2002 426f? My cousins bike and he doesn't have the manual. Did a search, but came back no match. Thanks

FYI, make sure you remove the dip stick (or the oil will not flow out, from back pressure)

:thumbsup::thumbsup::confused:
