WR450 08 - How can I view time running?

6 posts in this topic

On the FAQ it said to inspect/adjust the valves after break in between 10 - 15 hours of use.. How can I view this on the display? Doesn't seem to have this function, would be easier if it were kms not hours.

I don't know if it makes a difference that this bike was bought in Australia.

This is why many riders install hour meters. When running off road, it is not the miles/Km you go but the time running that matters most.

hmm..

I haven't opened my bike at all (changed the oil etc).. It's at 220kms (135miles) should I take it for another ride before I get the mechanic to do all the necessary adjustments and drainages?

135 miles on it, I would say its time for a oil change and air filter cleaning. I dont think you need to check the valves just yet. But like the others have said get a hour meter, they are only about $30.00.
