450 oil change ?

5 posts in this topic

Maybe every 4th oil change. Have yet to find anything in there. Wonder why yamaha even put it there, other than to aggrevate the owners.

I think they put the screen in there for people that don't do oil changes very often, and need something to catch the pieces of filter that fall apart. i change my oil every 500 km, change the filter every other oil change, and clean nothing out of the screen every fourth oil change.

Cheers

Chris.

I was checking it every oil change and never found anything in it. Now I only check it MAYBE every ten oil changes. It's a giant P.I.T.A. to check, so I don't see the need to do it as often anymore.
