Have you changed the oil in the 2010 YZ450 yet? It is a P.I.A You gotta have baby fingers and be a Contortionist and the lightspeed glide plate has no hole for the drain so we ended up cutting one in it.But where they located that drain hole is Ridiculous :moon:

I'd pull the plate....I did on my 06 just cause I didn't want it on there...

TOO MUCH WEIGHT :moon:

Let me know how that goes when you have a rock go through your case. And as far as the weight, it's so low I'll be you couldn't tell the difference if you were blind-folded. And before you go on about "never" riding off road or something like that, if you ever case a jump you're in danger of damaging the engine.
