need oil amount for WR426 2001 model

I picked up a used 426, but did not receive the owners manual. How much oil goes in the sump? Checked with Yamah, and they wanted $55 for the owners manual. Thanks, Kevin

1.6 litres

Actually, its 1600 cc (1.6 L) if you change the filter too. If you don't change the filter it's more like 1500 cc.

You can check the level by running the bike for more than 3 minutes, then pulling the dipstick and checking within 30 seconds.

Buy the manual, its very good and you will want it. It's worth every penny. Besides changing the oil, make sure and check the valve clearance.

Do a search on valve clearance if you want details before you buy the manual.
