oil galley bolt

I was just wondering how may people check the oil galley bolt after every oil change:thinking:

Everytime, easy thing to do so why not. On my KTM just the oil sight glass to see if it is half full, much easier to check but twice as long to do the change.

Never have on my 99s in 5 years of ownership, and have yet to do it on the 07 - probably never will. I've established a high degree of confidence in these bikes and don't worry about it anymore.

Check it for what? I was so mad, i followed the book for the oil change when i first bought my wr450. I had a very oily mess on the floor when i was done. Now i just change the oil thru the single large drain, and every 3rd oil change, i change the filter.

Every time. :thumbsup:

Okay, if you don't check it, just be darn sure you got the right filter! :)

There may be filters out there that are the same shape and size but have diffenences in the rubber seal that will not allow oil to flow. I had this experience once with a TTR225 when I blindly trusted that our local parts "specialists" here gave me the right filter. :thumbsup:
