oil filter

Ok on my 2002 wr426 when I change the oil do I need a new filter or can I clean it like the frame filter the book says check for tears is this a paper filter? and after the oil change how much oil do I need?

I'd recommend changing the oil filter along with oil changes. They're cheap and it's a lot easier to do it all at once rather than have to deal with debris in your oil later. As for how much oil you'll need, I don't know off the top of my head but your book should tell you.

Ok the book also says to remove exhaust pipe to remove oil filter is this necessary? wr 426 2002

NO. I also gave up checking the frame screen every oil change. I would check it if there are chunks on oil filter or maybe once a year to make yourself feel better.

Dont clean the paper filters (aftermarket) the OEM brass screen ones clean maybe once then toss em not worth the risk of them blowing apart (don't ask). Whatever you do do not get near them with compressed air they come apart easy after you blast them. just let them dry out after you clean them or get the solvent off them with a paper towel.:thumbsup:

I guess when you said no you meant I dont have to remove the exhaust pipe I did order new filters and amsoil 10-40

I change my oil every 10 hrs and the filter every 20 hrs

I'm pretty sure it'll take 1400 mils if you drain it all and do the filter

You are correct give it a try filter cover comes right off.
