Oil Change.

3 posts in this topic

Did my first oil change. Did'nt know oil would shoot out the frame like that.So how much does the 450 hold(with new filter)? Also my manuel shows a screen needs to be cleaned. How often should that be cleaned and whats the easiest way to get it out? It sure ain't like my 2-stroke.

take out the bottom drain plugs first and it won't shoot all over your front tire, just the fender :) I bought a scott's filter and clean it every time I change the oil, the other "screen" is in the lines behind the skid plate , I think the left one, I think its 1.1 L with filter and 1.0 without the manual has the info on that.

How often do you change the oil? I changed mine after first tank, found nothing in the filter, was expecting some chips. After two tanks, changed just oil, and it look pretty good also.
