remove the bottom bolt under the bike and drain the oil with the oil fill cap removed. then remove the hex bolt on the oil filter cover and drain there. mine as well remove the two other bolts and change the oil filter while your changing the oil. mine was real dirty and made it take a long time to add oil when i changed the oil for the first time on my wr426f. when i changed it it took two minutes to add the 1.8 quarts instead of 10-15 minutes. in the manual it says to check the oil strainer but there isnt much need to do that except for the first few oil changes or it the engine blows up.

-Run bike for 2 or 3 min

-Drain oil from frame (about 1 qt will come out). Be sure to use something to deflect the oil into the drain pan or you will end up with an oily front tire!

-Drain oil from bottom of engine

-Remove filter cover and replace filter

-Reinstall drain plugs and filter cover

-All oil through dip stick hole

-Run for 2 to 3 min then check oil level

A couple of tips:

-You must run the bike before you check the oil level

-Never run the bike with the dip stick out (unless you like cleaning up a mess!):bonk:
