250ttr oilfilters in a wr450f

I just got my new 2005 WR450F this weekend.

Question: Can I use the same oilfilters I use in the 250TTR with the WR450F?

Is the maintenance schedule (oilchange every 1000 km) for the WR450F necessary when I use the motor at non racing speed? I live in Burkina Faso, it is hot here.

Thanks for your help,

The TTR250 and WR450F oil filters are the same. I think you will find that most WR owners change their oil alot more frequently than that. I'm assuming yours is a road model so if you aren't getting alot of true off-road mileage in that 1000, then you should be OK. I would be using the best synthetic you can find for a little extra margin of protection. Don't know where Burkina Faso is, but it sounds hot.:worthy:

A WR450 only holds a little over a quart of oil so you can imagine how much work that little amount does.....not like a big bike that holds several quarts. I change oil about every 100 miles.

a wr426 stainless steel {re-usable} oil filter will work too! and you only need to buy one a year.

wr450s should have there oil changed every 400-500km!!! used good synthetic oil and it will last for ever!

The problem with the modern thumpers is oil dilution and gearbox shearing. I would use a semi synthetic and change around 500km, oil filter every 2nd dump and a magnetic sump plug. Some diesel oils are good for the job at a lesser price.
